Collection Historical Note
Duncan Brown was an employee of the Glasgow School of Design, Ingram Street, Glasgow, Scotland. Despite the new medium of photography being in quite an early stage of development, Brown was a talented photographer. Although some of his prints have faded over time and others have faults with their focus, the majority are well taken. The collection forms a unique and valuable record of Glasgow at the time when it was the "Second City of the Empire".
