EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the bustling city centre of Glasgow in 1950. From a bird's-eye view, we are transported to Central Station, the heart of this vibrant Scottish metropolis. The National Air Photograph Survey by RAF captures an aerial perspective facing south, revealing a tapestry of urban life. The image showcases the industrial prowess that defined Glasgow during this era. A ship majestically sails along the River Clyde while towering chimneys emit plumes of smoke from factories below. Tenement buildings dot the landscape, housing communities amidst their daily routines. Notably, remnants of coal fires can be seen billowing out from various locations, reminding us of Glasgow's reliance on this energy source at that time. The neighborhoods of Finnieston and Anderston stand prominently within the frame, showcasing their distinct architectural styles. This photograph also alludes to the Bruce Plan and City Engineer initiatives that were shaping Glasgow's future during this period. These ambitious urban planning projects aimed to rejuvenate and modernize certain areas within the city center. As a historical document preserved by The Royal Commission on The Ancient And Historical Monuments Of Scotland (RCAHMS), this print offers a glimpse into an important chapter in Glasgow's history. It serves as a testament to its industrial heritage and provides valuable insights into how cities evolve over time
