City Improvement Trust
The City Improvement Trust was a body which was set up to improve the squalid living conditions that existed in many parts of Glasgow in the latter half of the nineteenth century.

Visits to Paris by the trustees influenced the adoption of the traditional tenement house style (typical of Baron Haussman LinkExternal link ) to rehouse many thousands of Glaswegians.
