Barras Market

Shortly after the turn of the century a young woman created a trading situation in the east end of Glasgow, which has now become renowned throughout the world as "The Barras" Margaret Russell, daughter of an Ayrshire policeman got her first taste of business at the tender age of twelve, when she looked after a fruit barrow belonging to her mothers friend, in a street in Parkhead, Glasgow. She thrived in this enviroment and saved up enough money to buy a fruit shop in Bridgeton (East End Glasgow). It was during one of her regular visits to the fruit market that she met James McIver, whom she later married. Together they set up business at a yard in the district of Calton where they rented out horses and carts to traders who hawked around the wealthier streets of Glasgow. Soon they aquired more ground, this time in Moncur Street where they rented out static barrows to traders to trade to the public on Saturday mornings. This is now the present site of Glasgow Barrowland (Now affectionately known as "The Barras")
