Glasgow’s Kelvingrove has an exhibition of the photographic work of Eric Watt. A keen amateur photographer, Watt worked as a secondary school teacher in the city and between the late 1950s and 1990s documented the ever-changing built environment. After his death in 2005, 3,500 black and white and colour images were passed to Glasgow Museums. The period was one of of enormous transformation for the city, and the Watt documented a range of subjects such as children playing in the streets of the East End, to the Garden Festival roller-coaster. A book accompanying the year-long exhibition is available.
