Cathedral of Iron Horses
Commissioned in 2020 by GBPT, Cathedral of Iron Horses is a new film work by curator Thomas Abercromby and filmmaker Conor Reilly that explores the rise and fall of the built environment of the post industrious neighbourhood of Springburn.
Selected as one of Glasgow's Comprehensive Development Areas, the old urban centre of Glasgow North was rapidly redeveloped from the early 1970s to the early 1980s following the collapse of the railway industry. The development saw the demolition of 85% of its historic built environment changing the landscape of Glasgow North forever. The documentary provides a historical reference to the area's rich cultural past and the ways in which the community members are to save it.
