Glasgow City Council’s Mitchell Library is one of the largest public reference libraries in Europe. To make its resources more accessible, a selection of photographs and other images of the city has been digitised. This project has been partly funded by the Scottish Office Challenge Fund.
These images are just a small selection from those held in Archives and Special Collections in the Mitchell Library (on Level 2) and also from the city’s museums. Private owners of images have also kindly lent them for copying.
The selected material is of local and historical interest, featuring Glasgow’s buildings and streets as well as showing Glasgow’s people going about their daily lives. Photographs form the basis of the collection, but older prints and lithographs from the Glasgow Collection are included. Some modern photographs, particularly of areas which have greatly changed in recent decades, provide interesting reference points.
