The word 'tenement' means vastly different things in different places in the world - & this is Glasgow's / Scotland's version! The Tenement House is an important glimpse into early-20th-century Glasgow, a museum that allows us to get a better understanding of Scottish life today, by taking a moment to ponder the everyday of the past.
In the words of the National Trust for Scotland (who now cares for the Tenement House) :
"At first glance, the Tenement House appears to be an ordinary middle-class tenement from the late 19th century, standing in Garnethill. However, when you step inside, the faithfully restored four rooms appear as if frozen in time & provide a rare glimpse into life in Glasgow in the early 20th century.
Shorthand typist Miss Agnes Toward lived here from 1911 until 1965, & preserved her furniture & possessions with love & care. She held on to all sorts of things that most people would have thrown away, & this extensive personal archive has become a valuable time capsule for visitors today. The Tenement House also reveals what it meant to be an ‘independent woman’ at that time."
