Coming into View: Eric Watt's photographs of Glasgow

Eric Watt

Eric Watt's passion for amateur photography led him to spend his free time on the streets of Glasgow, taking images of the city and its people. This exhibition displays some of his most striking images showing Glasgow from the late 1950s to the 1990s.

Many of the most engaging photos show children at play in the streets and parks, but Watt also documented the adult world in all its complexity. Work, leisure, faith and politics are recorded with affection and curiosity. What stands out most of all is Glasgow itself and the way the city changed over time.
