Local History Group

Over the last few months our programme has included visits to:

- New Lanark,
- Glasgow Special Collections,
- Maryhill Burgh Hall,
- the Museums Resource Centre (twice so far as it's such an Aladdin's Cave),
- Kelvin Hall
- the Mitchell Library Glasgow collection,
- Garnethill Synagogue,
- the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, and
- Glasgow Cathedral

We have some wonderful photos capturing these visits.

--------------------

We've also had some interesting presentations, including one on the subject "Coats & Clark- History's Binding Thread" from one of our U3A members who is a former curator at Paisley Museum.

Our most recent presentation was a fascinating talk from the 'Friends of the Glasgow Necropolis'. We'll be following up this virtual tour with an onsite tour of this amazing site in more clement weather.

Forthcoming events include:

9 Dec – a tour of Paisley Abbey at 11.00

13 Jan – a tour of Glasgow City Chambers at 1.30
--------------------
10 Feb – a tour of the People's Palace at 11.00

9 March – A tour of historic Greenock at 11.00

13 April – tba (a possible visit to Kilmartin, Argyll)

11 May - a tour of Woodside, Glasgow at 11.00
