WILHELLMINA MCLEOD MARRIES JAMES BELL – FROM GALLOWGATE
Glasgow (East Central) http://gdl.cdlr.strath.ac.uk/airgli/airgli0104.htm
THE GALLOWGATE. – This street is one of the oldest thoroughfares of Glasgow. Its past history is fascinating, but I shall not pause to dwell thereon. Before the opening of London Street it was one of the chief highways out or into the city. Its leading shops were occupied by prominent citizens who did considerable business, especially among those who came in from the surrounding country districts. In my boyhood its vehicular traffic was considered great and important, and the guard’s bugle notes echoed through it as the mail coach entered the city, especially when bringing tidings of national importance.
