This blog serves as a repository for my historical research, some of it more fully formed than others. It will focus mainly on the social history of Victorian and Edwardian Glasgow.

When I began researching my undergraduate dissertation there was very little information online so my hope is that this may help another struggling student or even someone interested in local or family history.

For a more general history of Glasgow I cannot recommend The Glasgow Story enough – it is a goldmine of sources and information.
