Glasgow's Merchant City By Night After Rain Shower

Glasgow's Merchant City By Night After Rain Shower
Glasgow's, John Street at night. Just after a shower while I was on my way to Babbity Bowsters , light reflecting off the wet pavement. A lovely bit of the city. For more on this vibrant part of toun visit www.glasgowmerchantcity.net/

The Merchant City is a district of the city of Glasgow. The area was first formed during the 18th century to house the wealthy merchant "tobacco lords" who prospered shipping, amongst other things, tobacco, sugar and tea to the Clyde and fabricated goods to the Americas at this time many classical villas were built in the area. The name 'Merchant City' was coined during 1980's 'Glasgows Smiles Better' regeneration. Historically the area was called 'the tron' or 'cross' or simply by most Glaswegians 'the toun' or 'the town'. An annual Merchant City Festival takes place around the last week of September attracting tens of thousands to the area with a multi-arts programme.
