Event Details

The Scottish Printing Archival Trust is celebrating its 30th anniversary with an exhibition on the history of print production in Glasgow in the Glasgow Herald’s former printing works.

Glasgow’s printing industry dates back to the 17th century. The earliest printers are best known for the production of books, but Glasgow’s industry was much more than that. In the 19th and 20th century’s newspapers, periodical production and printing for business were major enterprises, operating large printing offices in the city and employing many people.
