Glasgow City Heritage Trust is excited to be teaming up with Lost Glasgow, to present an exhibition devoted to the documentation, discussion and appreciation of Glasgow’s changing architecture and its community throughout the last few centuries.

The exhibition is on from Thursday 29 June until Thursday 31 August 2017 at the Glasgow City Heritage Trust, 54 Bell Street, Glasgow G1 1LQ. Admission is FREE but please visit the Glasgow City Heritage Trust website for details of opening times.

Since launching in 2014, the Lost Glasgow Facebook page has attracted a 135k-strong global following. The site, which uses archive photographs to spark stories, memories, and debate about the city, its buildings, its people, and its ever-evolving history and future, was launched off the back of the successful Lost Edinburgh site.

The exhibition will cover everything from the majestic to the mundane, from the city’s great buildings to its more humble corners, from the tenement to the townhouse, from the great and the good, to the ‘common old workin’ man (and woman). The bottom line is, we love Glasgow, and the tales of our city. And everybody in Glasgow loves to hear a good story.

Join in, be a curator and rearrange our exhibition, then leave a comment about the pictures you connect with the most.

Friends of Victoria Park will be holding their annual lecture – The Importance of Our Memories – from 7.30pm on Thursday 23 March 2017 at Jordanhill Parish Church, 28 Woodend Drive, G13 1QT

This interesting talk will include contributions from Friends of Victoria Park and Dr Nicky Imrie from Scotland’s Urban Past, a 5 year nationwide community engagement project about the history of Scotland’s towns and cities.

There will be a short presentation about the local history of Victoria Park which will be followed by a talk about how local groups can work together on how to save memories for now and the future.

Housed in a refurbished Kelvin Hall in Glasgow, the new National Library premises extend the Library’s reach out of its historic home in Edinburgh.

The development provides interactive opportunities for education, research, entertainment and inspiration.

Visitors will be able to enjoy 100 years of Scottish life on film and video held in the Moving Image Archive, with access to footage that is not available online.

They will also be able to explore the Library’s vast digital collections — including e-books, maps, manuscripts, and reference works – from the earliest times to the present day. Much of this material can only be consulted on National Library premises.

‘Kelvin Hall has been reborn and we are delighted to be an important part of this new leisure and cultural centre,’ said National Librarian Dr John Scally.

We recently produced a progress report about the Heart of Scotstoun Community Centre for various funders and supporters of the project. It has been over 15 years since the community started campaigning for a new community facility and the report tries to capture some of the history of the development of the Centre, some of which can be seen in the image below…
