Catalogue Note

“[Annan’s]… reputation rests… on the remarkable series of photographs he took in the dark slums of Glasgow, The Old Closes and Streets of Glasgow. These were commissioned by the city authorities to mark the first slum clearances, which were authorized in 1866. Annan's… photographs, taken between 1868 and 1871, were designed to record the history of the buildings as well as the dreadful living conditions. They have a curious character of optimism, in celebration of a great civic proposal and the liberation offered to the inhabitants” (ONDB).
