Hilda Goldwag

I am now deep in researching for names to add to the ‘river’.

One of the nice things is discovering people (and places) connected to the canal and local area.

Hilda Goldwag was an artist recommended to me by the Scottish Jewish Archives centre. She lost her family in the Holocaust, coming to Glasgow as a refugee in 1939, and living the rest of her life here.

The canal, its boats and buildings were one of her main subjects – you can see some of her wonderful paintings here.
