"Langside, an old village and a fine residential district of Glasgow, adjoining the Queen’s Park, and containing a handsome Established church, erected at a cost of about £5000 and seated for 700 persons. In 1894 a new Free church, built after the amphitheatre fashion, was erected at an estimated expense of about £8000 (including halls), and contains about 900 sittings. Adjoining the sites of the two churches stands the Langside Battlefield Memorial—a carved monument, surmounted by a lion, and encircled by an ornamental railing. See GLASGOW."

From Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland, 1892-96
