Getting into GEAR
In 1941 Glasgow was the second city of the Empire. But by 1971 the census revealed the city's East End as one of the most deprived urban areas in Europe. The heavy industry on which it had thrived was dead or dying, and workers were leaving a derelict landscape in their thousands. The response, in 1976, was the Glasgow Eastern Area Renewal (GEAR) project and, to date, more than 400 million pounds has been spent in revitalising the East End.
As this unique effort comes to a close Margo MacDonald examines the results.
