Jürgen Schadeberg | Glasgow, 1968
Jürgen Schadeberg created a vast body of work documenting the daily lives of inner city working class communities – including an important document of the last days of the old tenements in the Gorbals district of Glasgow, which were demolished in the sixties to make way for new housing and tower blocks.

The photographs taken by Jürgen highlight the daily life for families as they tried to get on with life during the demolition and re-housing phase, despite many of them living in semi derelict conditions.
