Wednesday 20th May 2020 | 6-7pm BST | via Zoom
Pollokshields is Glasgow’s great Victorian garden suburb, the largest in Scotland if not the UK. Join our Deputy Director, Niall Murphy, as he examines its history and development.
Many of you have been enjoying Niall’s hugely popular #MomentsofBeauty in Glasgow posts on Twitter, as he documents his walks through the area during lockdown. Now is your opportunity to explore the history of the area in more depth. Find out more about the collective work of successive generations of the Maxwell family who guided the vision for the suburb, and the series of developers, contractors and clients who realised it. Niall will also discuss some of the Glaswegian architects of the Victorian and Edwardian eras who shaped its built fabric, and Glasgow’s finest craftsmen who supplied the details, before answering your questions.
FREE, booking required.
