Rutherglen is a town in Scotland, located close to Glasgow as well as the Clyde River. In the 17th century, Rutherglen was famous for its big horse fairs. In particular, the town was known as a place to trade draft horses. During the 18th century, Rutherglen was transformed in a hub for heavy industries, which included coal mining, metalworks, dyeing and printing. Today, the town functions as a suburb for Glasgow. While most of the area’s medieval structures have been demolished, some of its more contemporary monuments include its Town Hall, the Rutherglen Old Parish Church, as well as the Vogue Cinema.
