A Century of Glasgow Memories

 

eBook also available from the iBookstore

‘Anna Blair has a sensitive ear for dialect and a touch of gentle wit in linking her narrative’ – The Herald

‘It’s these apparently inconsequential accounts that make bygone eras vibrate with life’ – The Scots Magazine

In Tea at Miss Cranston’s and More Tea at Miss Cranston’s, Anna Blair recreates a bygone era through the recollections of countless Glaswegians who shared their memories with her during extensive interviews. Nostalgic yet never rose-tinted or bitter, they offer a candid picture of the joys and hardships – as well as of the mundane and everyday occurrences – of past times. This omnibus edition of her much acclaimed books is a feast of history and together provide a fascinating glimpse into the vibrant and intimate sides of a great city in years gone by.

Anna Blair, apart from her student years and a two-year stay in Malaysia, has always lived in Glasgow’s Southside. She attended Giffnock Primary School then Hutchesons’ Girls’ Grammar School. She graduated from Dunfermline College of Physical Education in 1947.
