School engagement lesson focused on soldier's health and medicine in the 20th century
In 1868 local printed and photographer Thomas Annan was commissioned by The City of Glasgow Improvement Trust to take pictures of some of the slum areas prior to demolition. This is claimed to be one of the first times photography was used as documentary evidence and his striking images illustrate glasgow for the poorest classes as it was in incredible detail!
In 2017 Glasgow City Heritage Trust ran a series of lectures and engagement events focused on the health of Glasgow over the last 200 years. One of these events included talks from colleagues from the University of Strathclyde and the Glasgow School of Art.
