Railway Men's Band

The Railway Men's Band after the 1891 strike.

This photograph was taken by William Graham (1845-1914). Graham worked for the North British Railway Co but set himself up in business as a photographer after losing his job during the railwaymen's strike of 1890-1891. He established a studio in Vulcan Street in Springburn and many of his photographs are now held by the Mitchell Library.
