Overview

When The Clyde Ran Red paints a vivid and entertaining picture of the heady days when revolution was in the air on Clydeside. United by the belief that an injury to one was an injury to all, these were the years when men and women throughout Glasgow, Clydebank, and beyond stood up to be counted. Through the bitter strike at the massive Singer sewing machine plant in Clydebank in 1911, Bloody Friday in George Square in 1919, the General Strike of 1926 and on to the Spanish Civil War of the 1930s, they fought for the right to work, the dignity of labor, and a fairer society for everyone. They did so in a Glasgow where casual wealth and grinding poverty passed each other in the street, where overcrowded tenements stood no distance from elegant tearooms, art galleries, luxurious shops, glittering picture palaces, and dance halls. Red Clydeside was also home to Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the Glasgow Style and magnificent exhibitions showcasing the wonders of the age. Political idealism and artistic creativity were matched by enormous industrial endeavor. The Clyde built many of the greatest ships which ever sailed the seas, as locomotives from Glasgow pulled trains on every continent on Earth. When The Clyde Ran Red celebrates the fighting spirit of the Red Clydesiders and the energy, determination, achievements, and sheer lust for life of the people of Glasgow, Clydebank, and Clydeside.
