old photos from the 1930's and 1940's in Scotland

My late Father was a keen photographer and left albums with interesting pictures of life in the late 1930's and the immediate post-War period.

Many of his childhood holidays were spent on the banks of the River Clyde else on family farms in the Perthshire area.

A special section features the Empire Exhibition of 1938 held in Bellahouston Park in Glasgow.

I decided to bring these old photos out of the albums and by means of the internet display them to show an intriguing way of life now far gone.

I do hope you enjoy these rare images.

Dedicated to the memory of Allan Dalziel (1910-1984)
