RSS Home Page

Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland, with the centre retaining an interesting variation of 19th and 20th century Victorian architecture. The city grew dramatically in size and wealth from the 1700s, as it became one of Britain's main hubs of transatlantic trade. Trade with British North America, and the British West Indies, were the most profitable routes, especially with tobacco and sugar.
