Glasgow Shops: Past and Present contains a fascinating selection of photographs of shops and advertisements ranging from the eighteenth century to the present day. The vintage photographs show how people shopped in times gone by and what they were able to buy. Many will remember names such as Lipton, A Massey & Sons and Templeton's where groceries were bought before the supermarket days of Tesco and Morrisons. Past fashion favourites such as Hepworth, Graftons and Saxone will also strike a chord. While many of the shops of our childhood have vanished, some have stood the test of time and there are 'before and after' photographs of some of these. Glasgow was famous for its department stores such as Copland & Lye, Pettigrew & Stephens, Forsyths and Lewis's, once Scotland's largest department store. All of these, plus the newer department stores Debenhams and John Lewis, are featured in the book as are multiples such as Boots, Marks & Spencer, C & A, Woolworths and British Home Stores. Also included are shopping centres such as Buchanan Galleries, the St Enoch Centre, Princes Square, and Scotland's oldest covered shopping centre, the Argyll Arcade. It is a fascinating collection that charts the changing face of Glasgow over the years, each photograph brought to life by one of the foremost experts of Glasgow history and culture.
