In the post-war years, Glasgow was suffering from a chronic housing shortage, with people living in overcrowded tenements and slum conditions. The response of Glasgow Corporation was to compulsorily purchase these tenements and move the residents to outlying housing estates like Easterhouse. However, the people of Dennistoun in Glasgow’s East End had a strong sense of community and refused to be moved.
