Demolition of 10 Block

The Disappearing Glasgow exhibition is taking place from Thu 19 Jan to Sun 19 Feb in Gallery Two at The Lighthouse, 11 Mitchell Lane, Glasgow G1 3NU. The exhibition takes a look at the changing city scape including the demolition of high rise tower blocks such as those at Plean Street, Kingsway Court and Lincoln Avenue.

The description of the exhibition is as follows:

Photographer and filmmaker Chris Leslie is widely acknowledged as the most consistent chronicler of the city’s recent history. This new multimedia exhibition and accompanying book ‘Disappearing Glasgow’ documents an era of spectacular change in Glasgow through the medium of photography and film.

The skyline of Glasgow has been radically transformed as high rise tower blocks have been blown down and bulldozed. Since 2006 more than 30% of the city’s high rise flats have disappeared, communities dispersed across the city and Dalmarnock have ‘been raised from the ashes’ via the Commonwealth Games.

Does this Disappearing Glasgow herald a renaissance in the city? 

stpauls_garden01Earlier in the year pupils from a few of the local primary schools came along to Kingsway Community garden to plant various vegetable seeds in some of the communal raised beds.

Last week the pupils from St Paul’s Primary in Whiteinch popped back along to the garden to harvest their leeks.

Despite the cold they had a great time up at the garden and harvested quite a few leeks – which they took back to their school and cooked!
