The rich history of Glasgow's famous Barrowlands is explored.

Barrowland Memories is a potted history of how the iconic market came to be and the literally rags-to-riches history of its founder Maggie McIver. It chronicles the expansion of the market to include the Barrowland Ballroom, now a major concert venue, and the bandleaders, punters, stallholders, hawkers and barkers who bring the market alive.

Readers will meet the likes of Chief Abadu, the 'snake-oil' man, the fire-eater, the escape artist, strongmen and other characters who helped create the colourful history of the market. The area's dark history includes ancient battlegrounds and hangin's at the gallows. It is peppered with stories from stallholders, punters and local characters, with some laugh-outloud anecdotes and nostaligic pictures.

The great cloakroom scam, Maggie's shareholdings in other venues such as The Plaza, her heartache and her legacy remain untold. Nuala Naughton puts that right with this comprehensive book, which brings the story of the Barras entirely up to date.
