John R Hume first started documenting Glasgow’s industrial buildings in 1964. Wandering the city by bicycle, he was determined to get images of as many of the city’s decaying industrial buildings as possible before they disappeared. He was just in time.

The photographs in End of the Line represent the enormity of the loss of Glasgow’s industrial heritage since the 1960s and 1970s. They shed a light on Glasgow’s industrial decline as the buildings fell in to gradual disuse and were demolished.

We will be previewing the exhibition at the GCHT exhibition space on Bell Street throughout July, before the main exhibition opens at the former Inland Revenue building on George Square towards the end of the month.

Many thanks to Veronica Fraser and Sarah Dutch at HES Archives for help with the images for this exhibition, and to Keith Mackie and Chris Stewart Group for their support with the venue for End of the Line: Part Two.
