Map of Glasgow, 1547

This map, which claims to represent the city as it was in 1547, was produced by lithographers Robert Gardner & Co in 1894 to illustrate the book Protocols of the Town Clerks of Glasgow.

The principal streets and buildings are named and land owners shown. A notable qualification is included: "It is supposed that in 1547 there were no buildings on the north side of Trongait, west of the West Port. Those shown on the plan were of a later period."
