This Day In Our History


This Day in Our History uses our rich archive collections to mark anniversaries relating to the events, people and places which helped shape Glasgow, Scotland and World history.  
The City Archives documents the many ordinary and extraordinary stories of Glasgow and its people as the city grew from a small town to the Second City of the Empire. 
In earlier centuries Glasgow and Scotland also made a unique contribution with the outpouring of ideas, expertise and its population to every corner of the globe. 
This Day in Our History will use the archives to give a snapshop of our own history and the history we share with much of the world.
