End of the Line: Photographs of Glasgow’s Industrial Past

About End of the Line: Photographs of Glasgow’s Industrial Past

John R Hume first started documenting Glasgow’s industrial buildings in 1964. Wandering the city by bicycle, he was determined to get images of as many of the city’s decaying industrial buildings as possible before they disappeared. He was just in time.

The photographs in End of the Line represent the enormity of the loss of Glasgow’s industrial heritage since the 1960s and 1970s. But they also demonstrate the monumentality and ambition of Glasgow's industrial buildings, as well as the diversity of architectural styles.

This is the first time these images, many of which were included in John R Hume's book 'Industrial Archaeology of Glasgow' (Blackie, 1974), have been exhibited in a retrospective. Help us celebrate this wonderful collection that explores the rich built heritage of Glasgow.

Many thanks to the generous support of HES Archives and our partners for this exhibition, Chris Stewart Group.

The exhibition will take place at 24 North Frederick Street, a wonderful Category B Listed former tax hall, currently under renovation with a grant from Glasgow City Heritage Trust. Please note that there is ramp access but some uneven flooring. For more details regarding access requirements please contact events@glasgowheritage.org.uk or 0141 552 1331.

Refreshments will be provided.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for End of the Line: Photographs of Glasgow’s Industrial Past are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
