An association for those interested in Glasgow was the brainchild of one William Liddell, a retired shipbroker, who inserted an intimation in the Evening Citizen on 2nd July 1900, which stated:
The first meeting of the Old Glasgow Club was held Monday 17th December 1900 at 8 o’clock in the Atheneum, St George’s Place, Glasgow. Mr Charles Taylor read a paper on “The Passing of Old Glasgow”. The rest is history. The current members of the Old Glasgow Club invite you to join them in enjoying and perpetuating the history of this great city, sharing and disseminating information worthy of permanent record for future historians.
In January 2008 we celebrated the centenary of admittance of women to the club - click here to see the pictures. Click here for the video. Click here to see the Glasgow Magazine Article about the event
