A photo-etching on mouldmade paper. The focus is provided by the five geographical locations of Glasgow Women’s Library since its inception in Garnethill to its new home in Bridgeton. Street names have been replaced with those of women whose contribution to the life of the city is acknowledged in the walking tours initiated by GWL. Where a street already has a woman’s name it has been left in.
