MERCHANT CITY, one of Glasgow’s most historic areas has experienced many changes in its time, so much so that on more than one occasion it almost disappeared from the face of the earth. Its renaissance in more recent years has become part of the city’s folklore – but the story is not over yet! We will explore how we arrived at the present, and look at some of the issues for the future.

This lecture by architect and historian David Martin is part of a series of events which celebrate, in 2017, the 50th anniversary of both the inaugural meeting of the Scottish Civic Trust and the passing of the Civic Amenities Act 1967 which introduced the concept of conservation areas.
