Tolbooth Steeple Glasgow Cross Scotland
Monday, March 02, 2009
This morning I visited one of Glasgow's most historic buildings, namely the Tolbooth Steeple at foot of the High Street. This dates back to the early 17th century ( 1625-7) when it part of a much larger multi-purpose building whose functions included:
- Office of the Town Clerk
- Council Hall
- City Prison
- Public Platform from which official, public announcements were made.
