Woman and child walking down street in Glasgow slum. People see a tenement and they automatically assume 'slum'. Looks to me like a decent local on a wet winter's day. The degradation' My arse.

Glasgow - Gorbals kids -1961

GLASGOW - the old Gorbals : a corner of the most deprived area of the city, June 1961. In the ensuing decade the tall, grim tenement blocks were demolished and the Gorbals was rebuilt but the whole process had to be repeated again by the turn of the century.

Tenement Back Court with wash house, Glasgow, Scotland - Each wife in the building had a 'wash day' when they could use the wash house (not all did, as if you were a little better off (or were thrifty) you could send your washing to the laundry. Big job - had to light a fire (and keep it lit) under the boiler and wait for it to heat and boil your clothes in it then hang them out after reboiling more water to rinse them. People nowadays don't realize how much work it was to live back then.
