Shadows of the City; Glasgow’s Lost Mansions and Houses by Dan Sweeney.
The context of their development is sketched and insights offered into how these symbols of wealth and influence became casualties of change and progress as the city expanded.
Details of the houses are interwoven with snapshots of the people who occupied them, among them some of Glasgow’s most notable figures, to provide a readable record of an important aspect of the Glasgow story.
