Glasgow’s Traditional Shopfronts

Join Glasgow City Heritage Trust on Wednesday 17th April for a talk by Iain Wotherspoon about the city's historic Victorian and Edwardian shopfronts.

Glasgow’s Traditional Shopfronts

About Glasgow’s Traditional Shopfronts

He will take us on a ‘virtual’ stroll along the pavements of Glasgow pointing out –and bemoaning the loss of–some of our finest (and most under-rated) streetscape assets: our Victorian and Edwardian shopfronts.

Iain Wotherspoon is an actor who has spent much of his career touring the theatres of the UK and Europe but also turns up regularly in repeats of Taggart. For the last twenty years he has been on the Planning Applications Group of Friends of Glasgow West reviewing every planning application for the Glasgow West Conservation Area, and he is now doing the same for the Architectural Heritage Society of Scotland, of which he is the Strathclyde Group’s Chairman. It was doing this work which opened his eyes to the plight of Glasgow’s disappearing shopfronts.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Glasgow’s Traditional Shopfronts are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
