A FASCINATING new book is offering a day-by-day glimpse of bygone Glasgow – and the Herald has two copies to give away.
‘The Glasgow Book of Days’ by Norman Ferguson offers a quirky, notable or eccentric event for every day of the year.
* On June 16, 1985, the Glasgow Apollo put on its final show – The Style Council. The legendary venue played host to the likes of Led Zeppelin, The Who and Johnny Cash.
* On June 17, 1831, a pedestrian – W. McMillan – walked 100 miles in 24 hours, including 30 backwards. He occasionally stopped for wine!
