Cathcart Road

Taking some inspiration from the photos taken during the photographic survey of Glasgow of 1955. Along with it they took loads of pictures of shop fronts and signs. I thought it would be a nice idea to go out and collect a little slice of history myself. In one day I took a picture of all the shop fronts on Cathcart Road in Glasgow and take a selection to make up a nice print. Since doing it many of these shops and signs have disappeared. but they are preserved here on this tshirt.

Check out The Glasgow Story for more information on the survey along with loads of great pics.

Also have a look at how some of the shops on Cathcart Road used to look.
