Map of Glasgow, 1970

This map of central Glasgow was produced by the city's Information Bureau in 1970, to help tourists find their way around and to identify the main sights of interest.

The grid pattern of city centre streets can be seen clearly. Although not indicated on this map, however, Glasgow was in the midst of major upheaval in 1970. The construction of the M8 through the north of the city and south to the new Kingston Bridge (which opened in 1970) would completely alter the character and appearance of many neighbourhoods, particularly Cowcaddens and Anderston.
