Have you seen this? 'Views of Glasgow' webpage

Someone may have posted a link to this before. If so, I apologize. If not, there's some great old photographs on there.

I especially like the one of Royal Exchange Square, with what is the present day GoMA. Not sure when it first became a library, would it have been when this was taken (1911 apparently)?

Funnily enough if you really can't get to sleep that's probably your best bet!

But back to topic...

Great find!

It was in 1954 that the Royal Exchange building became Stirling's Library.

Cheers,
