Glasgow West End

Research projects

A few months ago some of the Glasgow West End and Paisley & District history groups launched a research project, 'Learning from Adversity'. We thought it would be a good and interesting challenge for us. We’ve broken into small groups looking at the following topics:

• The anniversary of the UCS work-in
• The impact of WW2 in our localities
• Our Dancing Days
• The Emancipation movement in our areas
• Public health developments in our localities
• Statues and forgotten heroes
• Our impact on the environment

On this page we'll gradually put some examples of the work we've done. Check in regularly to see what we've uploaded.
