Event: 1978 Photo Journey @ Maryhill Burgh Halls

Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival

Jos Treen’s photographs capture the resilience and humour of Glaswegians in 1978 – a time when Glasgow had a huge poverty problem and the city was filled with appalling housing. Treen’s collection of over 100 photos document his year walking the streets of Glasgow with his Olympus OM-1. The Glasgow skyline has changed a lot since then and in many cases we are now left only with the memories of low factories, tall chimneys, higher flats, the skeletons of vanished streets and demolished tenements.
