 May Day on The Green 1913.

         Back in the old days away long before masks and lockdowns had been thought of, come the Glasgow Fair, the last fortnight in July, the good people of Glasgow would make their way to the Glasgow Green. During that two week period there would be a lot going on, on The Green, there would be a fair ground and lots to activities to keep you interested. It’s all gone, However, a small band of Glasgow Green lovers will be putting on a wee show to mark the Glasgow Fair on the Green.
