Description

Library Kelvin Hall West End Fest logos20th Century Glasgow on Film

Wednesday 26 June 2019, 6.30pm – 7.30pm

Part of The West End Festival 2019

Join us for a tour through 20th century Glasgow on film, from the collections of the Moving Image Archive - featuring the people of the city, its built heritage, streets and parks, and some views and landscapes which have long since changed.

The programme includes some of our earliest Glasgow footage, of trams in the city centre around 1902; the city’s transport network in the 1930s; Glasgow Corporation’s plans for the future of the city in the post-war period; a young couple’s day out in the city to buy a new car in the early 1960s; and a group of teenagers going into town on a Saturday in the 1970s.

Presented by curator Liam Paterson
