This website has been put together by the hard work of John Gorevan. John Has been researching the history of Glasgow’s pubs and publicans for the majority of his life. John has published a book called ‘Glasgow Pubs & Publicans’ as well as booklets including ‘Up and Down the Gallowgate’. John Gorevan and his son John Gorevan Junior have been working together to create this new version of the website to make it easier for everyone to access this great research for years to come.
This web site has been developed to record our local landmarks and to give a brief history on when the pub was established. The site will also record all the publicans who held the licence for the establishment and to record as much information on the pub as possible to insure that it will never be lost. So many of the local pubs in this great city have been demolished and the names of them have been forgotten, this site will hopefully bring back some good memories.
Although this web site has been developed mainly of the Glasgow pub and publican I have over the years collected a number of photographs and histories on pubs and publicans outside the city walls. These include Coatbridge, Hamilton, Wishaw, Cambuslang, Blantyre, Uddingston. As this web site develops pubs and publicans from all over Scotland will be included.
