East End Heritage Tour

Our purpose in going to the Glasgow Women's Library was to take one of their heritage tours. We chose the East End Heritage Tour and were treated to a delightful afternoon of learning.

The lift was added during renovations and is
decorated with the titles of books on the
library's shelves



The beehive shows how industrious women in domestic economics could be


Templeton's Carpet Factory. Tragically 29 women and girls were
killed when a high wind caused a large section of the building
to collapse into a weaving shed. 


The Drying Green - part of Glasgow Green where the women
would bring their laundry to dry.
