A photographic journey back in time to the 1960s when the City of Glasgow still prevailed as a centre of heavy engineering, shipbuilding, and steelworks.

The photographs illustrate a city and a way of life that has long since vanished with the slow decline of traditional industries, and wholesale demolition of the Victorian tenements to be replaced by multi storey boxes in the sky which have themselves since been demolished.

The days of holidays spent going “doon the water” to exotic places on the Clyde coast such as Largs, Dunoon and Rothesay, long before the Costa Del Sol eventually replaced them.

A city that was very different from that which exists today.
