Exploring 1970s Maryhill through the eyes of a local man

A Maryhill man born and bred, the late George Ward used his trusty cameras to document and immortalise the buildings and characters which were integral to Maryhill and Glasgow, many of which have since disappeared.

The exhibition includes old 35mm film photographs of streets and canal landscapes, as well as a selection of footage filmed using 8mm and Super 8 cine cameras. Also on display are a lamp post and other pieces of street furniture that George salvaged from depots and skips, in the hope that ‘’maybe someday someone will be interested.’’

Cinefilm footage will be shown on rotation and will change every month.

Maryhill Burgh Halls has wheelchair access, accessible toilets and large print materials.
