The Tenement House
145 Buccleuch Street
01413 330 183
Glasgow, more than any other Scottish city, is associated with tenements. This first-floor flat is a typical late Victorian example, consisting of four rooms and retaining most of its original features such as its bed recesses, kitchen range, coal bunker and bathroom. The furniture, furnishings and personal possessions of Miss Agnes Toward, who lived here for over fifty years, present a fascinating picture of domestic life at the beginning of the 20th century.

The flat is furnished with typical mainly 19th century Scottish furniture and contains a mixture of late 19th and early 20th century domestic items. The collection of personal papers is too large to be displayed at one time but a changing selection of examples is always on display in the temporary exhibtion area.
