A life to live in Glasgow

Chaplin, Jenny Telfer2008
Unmarried mother, Meg, and her daughter Becky live in fear of the exposure of Becky's illegitimacy in an era when it was a social stigma to be hidden at all costs. Meg lives through the trauma of the threat of Bubonic Plague in Glasgow in 1900 and the Ibrox disaster of 1902 when the newly built West Tribune Stand collapsed due to heavy rainfall the previous night. For Becky, the years of The Great War were barely noticed, beset as she was by her own problems. However, the trials of the Depression Years and WWII were only too personally experienced. Truly, a compassionate tale of 'A life to live in Glasgow.'
