1960s Glasgow: Stunning Photos Documenting Streets Scenes And Everyday Life

The 1960s was the era of major unemployment in the history of the city, as coal mines, street works and heavy industries went out of business. The crime rates were also high, especially the new youth gangs that were younger and more violent than the Razor gangs of the 1920s. The tram system was closed in 1962 On the final day of service, and there was a procession of 20 trams through the city, an event attended by 250,000 people. The shipbuilding industry on the River Clyde began to decline. The government started new high-rise towers and housing schemes to replace the tenement slums. Some of them were built outside of Glasgow in new towns such as Cumbernauld and East Kilbride.

These stunning photographs capture streets, roads, bridges, markets, and everyday life in Glasgow in the 1960s. Some photos also depict the life of Glasgow slums.
