Acre House

Text Box: I have had an interest in everything to do with Glasgow for over 30 years now and have amassed a large number of books, pamphlets and pictures which are taking over the house!
Glasgow’s history is so diverse, from a small village by the riverside serving the needs of the ecclesiastical community around the Cathedral, to a prosperous Merchant City.  From a hive of Victorian industry and shipbuilding to the new financial and call-centre set-ups.
Glasgow’s people are equally diverse, having been drawn from the communities near and far in the years of jobs and prosperity.  From over the seas they came, from Ireland, Poland, India,  China and Pakistan to name only a few.  
Glaswegians have taken their skills all over the world, too.
The architecture of the ‘Victorian City’ sits alongside the new builds, some absolutely magnificent, some absolutely awful.  We all have our favourites and those we would like to demolish.
Many people say that Glasgow has a buzz, like New York.  Having visited that city many times, I have to agree.
Glasgow is also the ‘Friendly City’.  Let’s keep it that way!
I don’t intend to try to re-invent the wheel here.  I don’t have the skills or the time to run a forum, I am not artistic, I’m not an architect or an historian.  I just love Glasgow...
So find here the sites I have found, which interested me.  I won’t recommend any of them, everyone has different interests and opinions.
I merely set them out before you.
Thanks for your interest in this site!
