By Gaby Laing, Heritage Officer
Please excuse the somewhat click-bait title, but my goodness
what a fascinating and influential past the Scottish Civic
My role as Heritage
Officer encompasses a number of things. Recently I had the
opportunity to delve into the SCT's archive of printed material and
do some officiating of the Trust's own heritage.
I have put together a timeline of the Trust's history of the
last fifty years. This is by no means a comprehensive list; rather
it comprises of some landmark moments which I hope will spark the
interest of both those who have known of us for half a century, and
those who have only just learned our name.
And in case you were wondering:
- Facelift was the name of the campaign to clean Glasgow up in
the 1970s. See 1970.
- Tobacco is in the name of our headquarters for twenty years:
the Tobacco Merchant's House. See 1997.
- BAR stands for Buildings at Risk.
