Description:

Thomas Annan established his photography business in 1855, and within a matter of years had become Glasgow's pre-eminent commercial photographer. This stunning selection of photographs from the company's archive records city life and shipping on the Clyde in both the relatively recent past and during Glasgow's Victorian heyday. There are classic views of High Street and the neighbouring streets before much of the area was cleared in the 1860s, as well as photographs of the city centre in the era of trams and horse-drawn transport. A chapter on Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Kate Cranston recalls the collaboration between these legendary Glasgow figures, with the buildings and interiors they worked on captured in T. & R. Annan's photographs.
