Glasgow : Aerial Photos


NB I CANNOT send you originals . They are not mine to give


Update July 19th 2016 Change mapquest tiles to osm tiles
Update May 4th 2015: Added watermark as too many sites were just linking and using bandwidth without contributing. Usual Glasgow associated Facebook pages who just steal and leech off others work.

History of images

"I'm not really sure of the exact provenance of the images - all I know is that a group of us bought them as a job lot on Ebay in 2006 in order to ensure that they didn't disappear into some private archive. From the stamps, they clearly come from the Planning Department of what was then Glasgow Corporation. The photos cover a span of what appears to be around 10 years, from maybe around the late 50s to the late 60s. A few of them show the same area prior to, during and after clearance and redevelopment of the city's dense inner-city neighbourhoods, as well as some of the outlying suburbs"
NB the Britainfromabove.org.uk website has photos from 1919-1953.
These image date from after that time period.
I wish there were more to put up and cover more of the area. East End and Southside are badly covered ,the images are hopefully somewhere safe.
