Join Ian R Mitchell on a series of walks through Glasgow's industrial past as he retrieves the hidden architectural, cultural and historical riches of some of Glasgow's industrial and working-class districts. Many who enjoy the fruits of Glasgow's recent gentrification may be surprised and delighted by the gems.

Ian Mitchell has uncovered beyond the usual haunts. An enthusiastic walker and knowledgeable historian, he invites us to recapture the social and political history of the working class in Glasgow. Taking in area including Pollokshaws, Springburn, Maryhill and Parkhead, Mitchell reveals the buildings that go unnoticed every day yet are worthy of so much more attention, and the stories behind them and their inhabitants.

You will be inspired to follow in Mitchell's footsteps and explore the Glasgow you thought you knew, and you will never be able to walk through Glasgow in the same way again.

MEDIA REVIEWS

We tend to associate the figure of the 'flaneur' with Paris, a city that encourages walking through all districts. But here Mitchell reclaims it forcefully and often beautifully for Glasgow, exhorting us to explore areas once thought 'off limits' as well as the tourist attractions to provide also a history of the working class. - The Sunday Herald
