Description

Of the many individuals documented in this book, the story of Jim Mollison from Pollokshields is perhaps one of the most striking. In his day Mollison was one of the world's greatest pilots, and many of his flying feats are still held in awe today and unlikely to ever be repeated. He was hailed as such a hero in America they gave him a ticker tape reception in New York and Holywood begged him to be a star. More recently Glasgow was popularized by a TV programme about one of the city's tough police officers, Taggart. The role of the Glasgow detective made Mark McManus one of Scotland's first international TV stars and Mark's own life story makes equally compelling reading. Before Billy Connolly Glasgow's greatest-ever comedian was Lex McLean. He smashed all the box-office records in a Glasgow theatre and became a legend in his own life time. His story features here in detail. Other tales include that of Peter Keenan who went on to become one of the greatest boxers to come out of Glasgow.
