Govanhill Baths Community Trust launches a book exploring and celebrating some of the buildings in and around Govanhill where people lived, worked, learned, relaxed, played and worshipped. Bruce Downie, its author, provides a talk on the buildings of social, cultural and industrial significance, giving insights into how the built environment shaped Govanhill. He will be joined by Saskia McCracken from SGHET who will talk about the people of Govanhill that have helped shape the area throughout the decades. There will be an exhibition and the opportunity for local people to share their memories of the area. This is a free event.
