New archive images on Flickr


The Glasgow School of Art Archives and Collections have recently added images from our poster and ephemera collections to our Flickr photostream. The archives hold an impressive collection of posters and ephemera directly related to the School and its activities, a selection of these items have been digitised and can now be viewed online. Items in the ephemera collection date from 1890 onwards and include leaflets, programmes, invitations, menus, and admission tickets; while the posters date from the 1960s onwards. The posters and ephemera provide a unique insight into the School’s history and serve as a record of activities and events such as fashion & degree shows, dances, plays and exhibitions. Please visit http://www.flickr.com/photos/gsalib/collections/ and take a look at the collection.
