The City Archives holds more than 150,000 sets of architectural drawings from various sources.
The most important of these drawings are the plans submitted to the various building control authorities, which date from 1870 until the present day.
Some authorities, such as railways, Clyde Port Authority and hospitals, were exempt from Building Control regulations. If you are looking for plans for buildings belonging to these authorities, please contact us for advice.
Our Architectural Plans leaflet (see right) provides further information on the wonderful documentary heritage of Glasgow’s buildings over the last three centuries.
