In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Calton like this:
Calton, dist. in E. of Glasgow, adjoining Glasgow Green, pop. 39,590.
The location is that shown for Calton on modern 1:25,000 maps, and reflects the description given by Bartholomew.
A Vision of Britain through Time includes a large library of local statistics for administrative units. For the best overall sense of how the area containing Calton has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of Glasgow. More detailed statistical data are available under Units and statistics, which includes both administrative units covering Calton and units named after it.
