Paddy's Market archiveStarted by Irish immigrants more than 200 years, Paddy's pre-empted the Barras Market by over a century and was the bread and butter for many of the city's residents. The market served as a lifeline for thousands, scarred by poverty. It was a vibrant place, eclectic, strange and beautiful - real Glasgow. It fashioned its place permanently in the hearts and minds of Glasgow's burgeoning pop culture and music scene in the late 70s and 80s, having dressed many pop stars and BBC dramas. Tram Direct will explore the contentious story of the market and the lives of the hawkers (traders) who worked there.
