The picture on the cover of this book - showing the piles of rubble created when much of Towhead was demolished to make way for the M8 motorway - sums up what happened to this densely populated part of Glasgow. Andy Stewart's book recalls the district when it was a close-knit community, with heavy industry sitting cheek by jowl alongside packed tenements. There's a photograph of the 435 foot chimney of St Rollox works, along with the steelworks at Blochairn and David Rattray's Cycle Depot - another victim of the 1970s motorway development. Garngad steamie, St Mungo FC, and local cinemas such as the Carlton Picture House and the Casino are among the many other locations featured.
