Shoppers in Argyle Street, 1955

Crowds in Argyle Street, viewed from beneath a shop awning on the north side of the street near the entrance to the Argyll Arcade, 1955.

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.
