Georgians on display

Actors Sarah Miele and Jamie Hughes dressed as Georgians to launch a new exhibition which traces Glasgow's history from 1714 to 1837.

How Glasgow Flourished, at the city's Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery, explores how during the Georgian period Glasgow grew into a city of global significance through business, shipping and engineering.

Direct descendants of Glasgow tobacco merchant John Glassford (1715-1783) have donated and loaned some of his personal items for display. They include a painting of his second wife, Anne Nisbet and a button from one of his jackets, showing a ship.
