Archives News: June 2008

The Glasgow School of Art Archives have started to make digital images of our collections available online via the Flickr website. A selection of images from our photographic archives has been uploaded. These include images of GSA staff and students from the 1890s – 1990s and examples of 19th century photographs taken by Duncan Brown, a former employee of the School and a talented amateur photographer. Some images of our textile collections have also been added, such as the red woven Portuguese apron shown here.

We plan to keep adding images to the site, including more photographs and textiles, along with examples of our architectural archives and Charles Rennie Mackintosh holdings. High resolution versions of the images can be requested by contacting the Archivist at
