SHETTLESTON TREE

WHERE IS IT: In the East End district of Shettleston, just past the Forge Shopping Centre where Shettleston Rd meets Muiryfauld Dr

Not much is known about this strange wall mural, depicting two silver trees, whose leaves each has a name etched upon it.



The local story is that two warring gangs were persuaded to put aside their differences, and that the tree was created by members of both, to commemorate those they had lost in their street battles.
