Shorthand typist Miss Agnes Toward lived in this tenement flat from 1911 to 1965, preserving her furniture and possessions with love and care.
We would like to expand and explore the period of Tenement heritage it collects, increasing interest and engagement with social and cultural history in Glasgow. Our plan is to utilize another tenement in the property to tell the story of tenement life from the 1960s onwards. We will begin by capturing information and memories from the people of Glasgow about life in Tenements beyond the 1960s via an oral history. Developing Tenement House in this way will enable visitors to engage with the broader story of life in Glasgow in an informal, friendly, and authentic way.
