Fascinating Vintage Snapshots of Glasgow in 1976

This post was originally published on this site
These pictures were taken by Ed Sijmons and his partner Louise during their trip to Scotland in 1976. After spending some time in Edinburgh and other places, they decided to visit Glasgow. “In Glasgow we stayed a few days, starting at a most terrible B&B, followed by a few days with a very nice woman, in the same street! The first address had 5 rooms at least and the second only one for B&B.” Described Sijmons. “It was a poor neighbourhood, and so looked the whole of Glasgow. We liked it, but not too much. But after all it was a real interesting city.”
More fascinating photographs could be found at Sijmons’ brilliant Flickr site.
