Glasgow Collection

Librarians Anne Escott and Enda Ryan photographed selecting prints from the Glasgow Collection in the Mitchell Library in the May 1991 issue of Glasgow City Council's newspaper The Bulletin. Anne Escott (left) was the librarian in charge of the collection from 1990 to 1997, and Enda Ryan was appointed to the post in 2001 when the collection became part of Archives and Special Collections.

The Glasgow Collection consists of a wide range of materials which illustrate the life and growth of the city. The majority of the stock consists of paper-based materials - books (from the earliest book printed in Glasgow in 1638 to present day novels), maps, newspapers, periodicals, broadsides, engravings, postcards, photographs, watercolours, theatre and music hall playbills and programmes and directories. Other media are also well represented - glass plate negatives, slides, audio tapes, celluloid negatives and CDs. There is a popular family history section. It is a treasure trove for anyone who is interested in the history of Glasgow.
