Films without videos


Two short reels of miscellaneous footage shot by Eddie McConnell. The first shows scenes of destitution around 1950s Glasgow - the focus being on the poor and 'unfortunate' of the city. The second reel records general scenes around Glasgow School of Art. Includes footage of an exhibition of sculpture and drawings by Benno Schotz (1891 - 1984) at John Orr & Sons showrooms (Schotz was the Head of the Sculpture and Ceramic Dept at the Glasgow School of Art at this time)
