Glasgow's most loved and famous hotel was formerly a British Railway Hotel and the choice of Hollywood stars on trips to Scotland when they appeared at the Alhambra and Empire theatres, is the subject of this timely chronicle. Glamour, drama, stars, fame, food and travel, weddings, life above and below stairs, music and dance, weddings and pianos, autograph hunters, board meetings and AGMS, fancy dresses and ballroooms - Glasgow's Grand Central Hotel has it all - and more! Origins, growth, heydey, and then bust! And now refurbished and stunning in glorious luxury - the hotel is celebrated in this wonderful, beautiful book. Personal mementoes, wonderful images of stars like Danny Kaye, Mae West, Laurel and Hardy, Gene Kelly, The Beatles, Cliff Richard, Laurence Olivier, Lena Horne, Jimmy Durante, decorate this gorgeous book.
