Nick Hedges: Glasgow Slum Life Collection

There are a few more pics available on the Shelter website.

Excellent Gina.

Looking at those single end tenements you can see why so many cheap towerblocks
were thrown up in the 60s.

This got me thinking of Streap's outstanding collection.  The buildings mostly looked tremendous from the front, but I wonder just how many of those were utter shitholes behind the fašade.  Some of those makes me think that these could have been dated late 1800's, not early 70's.  Utterly deplorable conditions.
