In 1955 Glasgow camera clubs got together to create a unique photography survey of the city. They photographed everyday scenes of people and places and in the process created a wonderful record of daily life. A selection of these popular photographs is back on display at the People’s Palace. For some it will be a trip down memory lane and for others a chance to see Glasgow as it looked over half a century ago.

Brings back marvellous memories of Glasgow as it was

Fantastic – reminds me of the stories my mum and dad told me

Absolutely outstanding, especially the industry and street scenes
