That wasn't me, I came across the link on another site and was aware of the history of these pics, just glad they are now out there for everyone to enjoy.

I got a nice crop of the Calton area between Gallowgate, Abercromby St, London Road and Glasgow Cross from the photo labelled Gorbals 3.
I even managed to get a view of my granny's old house at the top of Tobago street!


Gina, l had a look at the 'Panoramas' link above your post and l can't see Tobago Street in the Calton photo. Is it in one of the other photos?

This is the section of Calton I spoke off.
Blue dot is junction of Tobago St and Gallowgate.
Green dot is Market St.
Orange dot is the junction of Gallowgate, Abercromby St and Bellgrove St.
Magenta dot is Elcho St.
The yellow dot was one of the entrances to the Meat Market.
The red dot was an area we called "the Brokey" and there were usually a couple of old wrecked vehicles of some kind lying there.

There is an earlier picture of this area which shows a church in that spot.

Ooh, my ears are burning - a year late!

My memory of when we chipped in and bought them was that we were nervous about putting them up due to the shady provenance and unknown copyright situation - not because we wanted to hoard them.

About a year ago, during a discussion on the Skyscraper City forum, I stuck up some small crops of sections of them for illustrative purposes - seem to recall it was a thread about the loss of entire, densely-populated neighbourhoods or something. After sticking a few crops up, someone on there contacted me and asked about them.

After a lot of pondering, I thought it was maybe about time more people could see them. Still slightly nervous about the copyright and provenance, the other member of SC offered to host them in a full-resolution, zoomable format, on the proviso that we keep a close eye on who was accessing them and gave the link fairly limited exposure, just to see how it went. After a month or so, the usual Facebook nostalgia pages started to pinch them, so he watermarked them.

Sorry if anyone was annoyed, but after 8 years, I felt that it was time to look into giving them an audience, and there would be less concern about copyright. Only contact we got was the odd request for a certain image where someone could see the long-gone house of some long-lost relative. I think we had one media request from a local paper which I turned down.

I did start a discussion on HG in Dec 2014 about whether they should be unleashed to a wider audience, and the few who replied seemed to be in favour.

As an aside, I have no idea who in here is who over there...!

I agree, they should be made available to everyone, they were found in a skip after all.

Unless I am mistaken the aerial photos that form part of the Urban Glasgow Collection have always been fully available to anyone viewing this section.

As they are only available in a small resolution I don't think there was any worries about anyone stealing then or have I got that all wrong.

As one of the original buyers I also feel that it is time for access to be given to that other collection which is currently only available to those with access.

I don't believe there is copyright infringement as we bought the photos and arranged for them to be scanned. I don't know who held on to the originals but I know we all received a high res copy on a disc.

Maybe we should make them available as low resolution and see what happens. I think the biggest problem will be from people stealing them for their Facebook pages and groups.
