Often described as the city’s ‘historic heart’, the East End is a mixture of iconic buildings, independent shops and of course plenty of ghost signs. From the Barras, which makes organised chaos into a great day out, to the historic quarter boasting the Necropolis and Glasgow Cathedral, to breweries including Wellpark, where Tennent's has been made for centuries, there's certainly no shortage of heritage here!
Ghost Signs of Glasgow was started in 2018 by Glasgow City Heritage Trust. Ghost signs, the fading remains of old painted signs on buildings, provide an invaluable insight into Glasgow’s architectural, social and cultural history. This project unearths the stories behind these old signs and shopfronts across the city and captures them for posterity.
