Wikipedia Reference Information
Tollcross is an area north of the River Clyde in Glasgow and has a popular park which is famed for its international rose trials. It lies approximately a mile east of the neighbouring suburb of Parkhead, and just north of Braidfauld and south of Shettleston.
The area was once host to mass employment in the industrial age thanks largely to the large Fullarton steel works, but now faces social deprivation issues as does much of the east end of Glasgow. McVitie's biscuit factory is one of the main employers in the area today.
