Street banners are up!

Street banners adorn the sky above Saracen Street!

Designed as part of an overall campaign to lift the look and feel of Saracen Street, the banners celebrate the area’s rich heritage and encourage us all to ‘love local’.

Saracen Street was given its name by Walter McFarlane of Saracen Foundry fame, and its range of wonderful shops over the decades are much remember and loved by local people. In fact, there are a few details of the heritage shop fronts that you can still see today.

The banners were installed by Field and Lawn on a rainy night and the images were sourced from The Mitchell Library’s amazing archive.

Night and Day!

The banners are part of the national Scotland Loves Local campaign and were made possible with funding from:

Scotland’s Towns Partnership; Scottish Government; Town Centre Action Fund; Glasgow City Council; Thriving Places; Glasgow Canal Coop; Heritage Lottery Fund; and ng homes
