These two pages are intended as an introduction to “interview in Glasgow”. The interviewee, a retired firefighter who has lived in Glasgow for 53 years, describes the changes that have taken place in that time. The background information provided here (text and images) should be both appropriate in level and sufficiently rich to give your pupils a clear image of what Glasgow is and was. We have deliberately chosen not to put captions on the images so that pupils can be asked to match them to the text and to justify their answers.
