Rooftop view of industrial Govan

A rooftop view (by Enid A Carrier) of Govan in 1955, looking over a street lined with industrial buildings towards the cranes of the shipyards along the banks of the Clyde.

In 1955 Partick Camera Club set out to create a photographic survey of Glasgow. As the project progressed, other camera clubs joined and each was allocated a district of the city to photograph. Glasgow Museums exhibited the photographs at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and at the People's Place, and in 1956 the exhibition was shown at the Palace of Art in Bellahouston Park. The photographs are now part of Glasgow Museums' collections.
