Govan’s Monument to Mary Barbour: A reflection of history and the spirit of a community

This episode of Southside Chronicles explores the history of Govan’s Mary Barbour and the community-led effort to install a monument in her honour at Govan Cross. It provides a brief overview of Glasgow’s 1915 Rent Strike, Mary Barbour’s achievements, and the efforts of first the Govan Reminiscence Group, and then the Remember Mary Barbour Association to establish a permanent memorial to her in Govan’s built environment.
