Lansdowne Literary Association


Lansdowne is an area in the West End of Glasgow. There is little currently known about this society. The only information we have comes from the minute book of the Kelvinside Literary Association. In the minute entry for 19 March 1872, at the Annual Social Meeting of the Kelvinside Literary Association held at the Kelvinside Free Church Session House, a deputation from the Lansdowne Literary Association is mentioned as visiting that evening having been invited to attend. At that meeting, it was suggested that the two societies hold joint debates together in the coming session.
