I just found a great collection of photos from the LIFE photo archive hosted by Google. I hadn't seen a lot of them. The best one IMO are taken in the slums – the early and latter pages of the ten pages of Glasgow images.

Here's some of my favourites:

Young girl holding small, dirty-faced little girl, in slum section of the city

Attached Image
Candidate visiting a home of people living in slum section of the city

Attached Image
Woman and child walking down street in slum section of the city

Child playing in slum section of the city

(The descriptive words referring to 'slums' are from the collection, not me!) See all the Glasgow pix here:

Heather I think a lot of them are taken from the Thomas Annan's 'Old Closes and Streets of Glasgow.

It would be nice if they told you the name of the streets recognized some of the Gorbals and Trongate
