Photographer's Note

The word "Glasgow" can be supposedly translated into "green hollow" or "dear green place", and it must have been beautiful and impressive from its beginnings if Daniel Defoe wrote that Glasgow was "the cleanest and beautifullest, and best built city in Britain, London excepted'.

Glasgow is said to be founded by the Christian missionary, Saint Mungo, in the 6th century. He established a church on the Molendinar Burn, where the present Glasgow Cathedral stands.
