This is a marvelous wee run-down of the genuinely rags-to-riches story of 'Sir' Thomas Lipton. Some good graphics and a dollop of authentic little historical facts. It's the kind of monumental Glasgow story that appeals to me - rather than rhetoric and hype about 'Red Clydeside'... and, of course, some really bad writing like 'No Mean City'.
