History of Images

If you dont know about Robert Pools, almost overwhelming, collection of Glasgow connected pieces then you really should. LINK
I asked for permission to tile the largest versions of the images in his Glasgow in Black and White set and he generously let me do so.
Hopefully this is an ongoing project adding more image sets from different sources.
Associated Gap74 mid 50's/60's set I have added some contrast enhanced versions that may help with the wider views.
( i know 11 and 18 are the same but i am just going to leave them as is)
