This month, we have two snapshots of the city, one from the late-18th century and one from the 20th century. Published by specialist genealogy suppliers my-history.co.uk, the latter is the complete Glasgow Post Office Directoryy from 1912-1913, normally priced £30. This is a useful source – indeed the sheer size of the directory means that it is normally sold in three parts. Each volume comes with a preface, indexes, late names, calendar and tide tables, plus the original Glasgow Environs map.
