Welcome acp1

Stick around and I am sure the people on hear will show you how they can bring these images to life again and generate the type of discussion your Grandfather would have loved to participate in with people who enjoy a bit of urban exploration.

Thanks for allowing us to be the first to showcase some of Andrew's collection of photos.

Hi all,

I'm Andrew's grandson and I'm really glad to see that these pictures are bringing enjoyment - what a perfect place to be able to showcase them.

I spent many happy summer days with my grandfather traveling across Glasgow when I was growing up, hearing his stories and soaking up the history of the city, and although I probably didn't appreciate it as much as I should have back then, I certainly do now when I see all of these pictures 15-20 years on.

I am currently going through what must be well over a thousand of these pictures and slides - I will be sure to let you know once this is done.

Thank you for enjoying these family pictures!

Former Blackfriars Church

Blackfriars Parish Church in Westercraigs in Dennistoun.

The church was designed by Campbell, Douglas & Sellars in a German Romanesque style and built 1876-1877. It replaced the old Blackfriars Church which stood next to the University of Glasgow on High Street and which was demolished in the 1870s to make way for the City of Glasgow Union Railway's College Station. The first minister of the new church was Thomas Sommerville who was also the last minister appointed to Blackfriars by Glasgow Corporation, which lost its right of patronage three years later. The church was closed in 1983, when the congregation merged with a neighbour to form Dennistoun Blackfriars.
In 1955 Partick Camera Club set out to create a photographic survey of Glasgow. As the project progressed, other camera clubs joined and each was allocated a district of the city to photograph. Glasgow Museums exhibited the photographs at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and at the People's Place, and in 1956 the exhibition was shown at the Palace of Art in Bellahouston Park. The photographs are now part of Glasgow Museums' collections.

A feature of some of ACP's photos was Whitevale Flats.

He has now got me hooked on them. Every opportunity I get I take photos of them from all different angles.

Notice Oakley Terrace, named for the famous Annie?


Oakley Terrace was in fact named by a local landowner called Alexander Dennistoun, whose son, also Alexander, married Georgina, daughter of Sir Charles Oakley in 1852.
