Exhibition to peer through the lens back to Glasgow of 1955

The People’s Palace is soon to show an exhibition of photographs - many unseen for fifty years - at the People’s Palace, that will take visitors back to the Glasgow of 1955. Glasgow 1955: Through The Lens opens on 1 July.

In 1955, Glasgow camera clubs created a unique photographic survey of the city. They photographed everyday scenes of people and places across Glasgow - the Clyde, city streets, parks, and people at work and at leisure - and created a wonderful record of daily life in a city on the cusp of tremendous change.

This change was something the photographers were keenly aware of, and indeed many of the scenes captured in the photographs seem very far removed from the Glasgow of today, although many others are instantly recognisable.

The exhibition celebrates the 50th anniversary of this survey with not one, but two, displays of some of these fascinating photographs. In January 2006, the selection of photographs shown will change. The exhibition will run until 30 July 2006.

The photographs were gifted to the City by the camera clubs in 1955, and were shown that year in Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and the People’s Palace. Images are available on request, and admission is free.

Opening hours for Glasgow 1955: Through The Lens at the People’s Palace are 10am - 5pm daily, except 11am - 5pm Friday / Sunday. Information on the People’s Palace is available on 0141 271 2951 or
