In 1870, Thomas Annan photographed 100 mansion houses of “the old Glasgow gentry.” In this exhibit, we examine some of the owners of those mansion homes, with particular focus on their links to slave ownership. We will display our copies of the volumes of photographs, alongside documentary evidence.
