Jamaica Street Bridge, 1955

Crossing Jamaica Street (or Glasgow) Bridge, on an early evening in 1955. The women in the foregrond are heading for the city centre, but most of the traffic is heading south.

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.
