Description:

ld Bishopbriggs charts the development of the town from its position as a minor industrial player at the beginning of the last century to dormitory suburb status today. As well as Bishopbriggs itself, Auchinairn, Colston, Kenmure House, Mavis Valley, St Mary's Boys School and Cadder are also included. For the transport buff, there are a number of good tram shots and some views on the Forth & Clyde Canal showing the famous Queens (a fondly remembered series of pleasure boats). The grim Cadder Pit disaster of 1913 in which 22 men lost their lives is also covered. This is an interesting book with a lot of good pictures showing a place that can seem a bit dull on the surface to visit today.
