From bishops to battlefields, barrow boys to business tycoons, Nuala Naughton brings to life some of the characters and events that have shaped Glasgow's East End since the city's founder St Mungo first set eyes on the 'dear green place'. This lighthearted account looks at the legends behind the city's coat of arms and the foundation of the city as an ecclesiastic centre of excellence and respected seat of learning. It also offers a colourful insight into tenement life with anecdotes and interviews by born and bred Eastenders: how to make "silk stockings" from used teabags and an eyebrow pencil during the war years; the dancin', the saints and sinners; the 'City of the Dead'; the original make-do-and-mend community; and how the Barrowland ballroom came to the attention of the German high command and the war propagandist Lord Haw Haw. From medaeval Glasgow to modern times, it offers a pick 'n' mix of fact and fiction, myths and miracles.
