Bridgeton and Calton formed the heart of Glasgow's old East End until half the area was swept away in the 1950s, 60s and 70s. Eric Eunson chronicles the rise and fall of these two neighbourhoods, covering their early history along with the story of Glasgow Green and its various uses and entertainments, the much-travelled McLennan Arch, and the origins of the name Shipka Pass. Shops, merchants and pubs - including, of course, the famous Sarry Heid (Saracen Head) - are featured, along with views of the Gallowgate, London Street, Abercromby Street, London Road, Bellgrove Street and more, not forgetting Bridgeton Cross and the 'umbrella'. The book finishes up with pictures of Dalmarnock Road and its surroundings.
