Gorbals area of Glasgow; Two young boys walking along a street in 1948
31st January 1948: Two boys walking along a street in the run-down Gorbals area of Glasgow. The Gorbals tenements were built quickly and cheaply in the 1840s, providing housing for Glasgow's burgeoning population of industrial workers. Conditions were appalling; overcrowding was standard and sewage and water facilities inadequate. The tenements housed about 40, 000 people with up to eight family members sharing a single room, 30 residents sharing a toilet and 40 sharing a tap. By the time this photograph was taken 850 tenements had been demolished since 1920. Redevelopment of the area began in the late 1950s and the tenements were replaced with a modern tower block complex in the sixties.

circa 1900: The Municipal Buildings in George Square, central Glasgow. Glasgow's City Chambers are built in Italian Renaissance style and were opened by Queen Victoria in 1888. The statue on top of the column is Scottish writer Walter Scott (1771 - 1832) and the square also has statues of Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and Robert Burns.

Parable Of The Talents
An engraved depiction of The parable of the talents from the New Testament Book of Matthew 25:14-30, circa 1700. The parable tells of three servants, each entrusted with varying sums of money (the talents), who either put their money to work, or in the case of the third, lazy servant, simply bury it for safe keeping. The scroll at the top of the image is a dedication to the sponsor of the illustration, William Penn (1644 - 1718). (Photo by Hulton Archive/Getty Images)
