Glasgow and people 

A hundred and fifty years ago Glasgow was the second city of the empire

A centre of heavy industry such as shipbuilding and textile manufacture

A centre of design, typified by the Glasgow architecture

But a century or so later Glasgow was struggling to survive as a city. 

Unemployment, poverty and significant population decline challenging the future of the once great city

While in the UK, in Australia, there is tension and a struggle about accepting migrants and refugees. 

For Glasgow, have stabilised it’s population. 

The cities motto “People make Glasgow” a reflection of the more diverse international city it has become. 

People make Glasgow proudly on the new skyline. 

Maybe we should all be thinking about people, humanity.
