Description:

Believe it or not, this area of Glasgow took its name from one Mary Hill, who granted land from her Gairbraid Estate for the building of a village on the condition that it bore her name. The Forth and Clyde Canal prompted Maryhill's development, and the new waterway attracted boat-building, saw-milling and other industries such as ironfounding to its banks. Pictures of the mills on the Kelvin, along with the area's former mansions, such as Bonville and Garscube House, show a surprisingly rural-looking Maryhill, although there are also plenty of photos of a bustling Maryhill Road lined with trams and packed with shops. Other pictures include a vintage Partick Thistle line-up (along with two other less well-known local football teams), the Bryant and May factory, the barracks, station, loads of canalside pictures, and the New Star and Roxy cinemas.
