The Clyde from King George V Bridge

Looking down the Clyde from King George V Bridge, 1955.

A passenger steamer is moored on Clyde Place Quay (left), while a dredger lies at rest in the middle of the river. The Broomielaw is on the right.

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.
