Margaret Watkins: Glasgow in the 1930′s II, finishes April 14th 2015

December 11th, 2014


The renowned Canadian-born photographer Margaret Watkins lived in Glasgow unknown for more than forty years until her death in 1969. She left a legacy of more than twelve hundred superb images of exhibition standard, mainly of her work in the 1910′s and 1920′s in New York. A further treasure emerged after her death of thousands of negatives and occasional prints of her visits to Europe. More immediately, she took some seven hundred photographs of Glasgow in the 1930′s. This exhibition shows previously-unseen contact prints and enlargements which have been processed by master-printer Robert Burns, who has used the same chemical processes that Margaret Watkins would have utilised including selenium toning.
