incidentally...to answer your question. In speaking about disconnection from the past. I was referring to the erasure of whole districts of Glasgow that once existed and now only the motorway flyover exists. These places had a proud and strong identity.
you often find fascinating fragments of evidence that they once existed as you walk around glasgow.
I don't know if you'd be interested, but Glasgow Mitchell library have a fascinating database of images of each district of Glasgow. some of the pictures are incredible and date back to the 19th century and also include the mammoth building projects/demolishings of the 1960's. http://www.mitchelllibrary.org
all the best
