Glasgow Family Album Talking Pictures

 Every family has old family photos – the pictures we keep and treasure.   In March 2010, Cranhill Arts with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Glasgow Community Planning Partnership, launched our innovative Glasgow Family Album. An on-line photographic archive, showcasing thousands of photographs taken and collected by Glaswegians over the past 130 years. These photographs give a unique insight into Glasgow’s people, culture and heritage.

The photographs in this Heritage Lottery funded project, were taken between July 1989 and early 1993, by people involved with Cranhill Arts Project.

The Idea was to document the lives of Glaswegians from 'Our Point of View' – very much an insider’s look at our city.

This simple idea grew into the biggest single documentary photography project ever undertaken in Scotland.

This Powerful look at inner-city Glasgow was shot by members of Cranhill Arts in 1984. Using music and images, the history of Glasgow is set against scenes of demolition, unemployment and industrial wasteland.    Clyde Film premiered in Moscow at the World Festival of Youth and Students.  In 1985 it was shown at May Day Glasgow and at Glasgow Film Theatre in December.
