Not beautiful, but alive and splendid. The young authors write with humor and passion. From the colorful backdrops of the quays, to the exhausted workers, to the ever-active city man, the pages are alive with Glasgow scenes and types. The book is liberally illustrated by the pen drawings of Muirhead Bone. An introduction by Perilla Kinchin presents new material on the authors and briefly traces the citys changes in the last century.
