A Saltmarket Transport Problem

"A Saltmarket Transport Problem", photographed by William Donald Munro, 1955. A group of children stand outside a shoe repair shop with a broken vehicle, which appears to consist of bits of bicycle and push-chair!

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.
