Tenement House

145 Buccleuch Street
Central Scotland
G3 6QN

Here is a typical Victorian tenement flat of 1892, a fascinating time capsule of the first half of the 20th century.

It was the home of an ordinary Glasgow shorthand typist, Miss Agnes Toward who lived up this 'close' for more than 50 years, and it retains many original features such as the bed recesses, the kitchen range, coal bunker and bathroom. In the gaslit parlour the table is set for afternoon tea - and there is a rosewood piano - a sure sign of Victorian gentility! There is an exhibition on the ground floor about tenement life.

There is no parking nearby and visitors are recommended to use a city centre car park and walk to Buccleuch Street (see directions below).
