Take a walk around old Govanhill, with local historian Bruce Downie, author of Loved and Lost: Govanhill’s Built Heritage.

Learn the history and heritage of a remarkable community and the people from around the world who made it their home, the rifle regiment that became a football team, cinemas and skating rinks, churches, mosques, synagogues and swimming pools.
