Virtual Mitchell

The Virtual Mitchell brings together a series of illustrations to provide a fascinating insight into the history of the city and people of Glasgow.

Featuring buildings and streets as well as people going about their daily lives, these images will be of great interest to local historians, people researching their family history and anyone who would like a glimpse of Glasgow in days gone by.

Most of the photographs are from Archives and Special Collections Department at The Mitchell Library. Some come from Glasgow Museums and others were kindly lent by private owners. You can search by area, street, subject or just browse through all the photographs.
