The Cultural Memory of Georgian Glasgow

Craig Lamont

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines the main International Exhibitions hosted by Glasgow in the years 1888, 1901, 1911, and 1938. These occasions were used to promote Glasgow as a primarily industrial city with pride of place in the British Empire. Nostalgia for the Georgian and medieval periods is shown to have affected the cultural memory of Glasgow’s role in the Scottish Enlightenment.
