They called it “The Second City of the Empire”. In the nineteenth century, Glasgow’s shipyards produced over half Britain’s shipping, its engineers a quarter of all the trains in the world; from textiles to banking and all sectors in between, Glasgow was indeed flourishing.
And the financial riches pouring into the city supported a wealth of outstanding artists and architects. Evelyn Silber explores the amazing creative outpouring of the time through the work of Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson, the Glasgow Boys, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, and their contemporaries.
