The Evening Citizen, was an evening version of the Glasgow Citizen (a daily newspaper founded in 1842). It was first published in August 1864, was one of the first of three evening newspapers to be printed, published and sold in the Glasgow area of Scotland. Both papers were founded by James Hedderwick.[1]

In 1889 the Evening Citizen moved to 24 St Vincent Place, located in the city centre, which was one of the first buildings in Glasgow to be made from red sandstone, and was built that same year to accommodate their printing presses and offices. The newspaper was owned by Beaverbrook Newspapers Ltd when they ceased publishing in 1974. They were based in Albion Street, Glasgow, at the time of their closure.[2][3][4][5]
