Event description
The latest exhibition at Maryhill Museum showcases the social history of Glasgow through Morton Gillespies's documentary photography.

About this Event

A photographic journey back in time. These photographs

document the wholesale demolition of Glasgow’s slum

tenements to be replaced by multi storey boxes in the sky and

peripheral housing schemes remote from the city centre. A time

which saw the decline of the traditional industries of heavy

engineering, shipbuilding and steelworks which had made

Glasgow the second city of the empire. The days of Clyde

steamers which transported Glaswegians “doon the water" to

Dunoon, Largs and Rothesay. Gillespie’s images capture

memories of the past and of a brave new world in the making.

An evening viewing attended by Morton Gillespie.

Light refreshments will be served.
