A Grim Almanac of Glasgow is a day-by-day catalogue of 366 ghastly tales from around the city. Full of dreadful deeds, strange disappearances and a multitude of mysteries, this almanac explores the darker side of Glasgow's past. Here are stories of tragedy, torment and the truly unfortunate with diverse tales of brutal murders, tragic suicides, and macabre events, including the experiments of Dr Andrew Ure, who, in 1818, applied electricity to the dead body of an executed murderer, animating the corpse and convincing spectators that the murderer had come back to life! All these, plus tales of fires, explosions and bizarre accidents, are here. Generously illustrated, this chronicle is an entertaining and readable record of Glasgow's grim past. Read on...if you dare!
