Glasgow - The Tenement House (in the care of the National Trust)

The Tenement House is an ordinary middle-class tenement from the late 19th century, standing in Garnethill. The faithfully restored four rooms appear as if frozen in time and provide a rare glimpse into life in Glasgow in the early 20th century.

Shorthand typist Miss Agnes Toward lived here from 1911 until 1965, and preserved her furniture and possessions with love and care. She held on to all sorts of things that most people would have thrown away, and this extensive personal archive is a valuable time capsule for visitors today. The Tenement House also reveals what it meant to be an ‘independent woman’ at that time.

If you are still in Glasgow Pete I can recommend a visit to the lighthouse.
Thanks Garry. Will try to make it. Only have tomorrow left and we have a couple of things mapped out already. However, we have decided we would like to come back and spend more time here. It is only a stop off for us on this occasion to break a journey to visit my brother in Carradale.

Cheers

Pete
