I had no idea that the extraordinary photos of Oscar Marzaroli are now available for all on the web at this dedicated site , courtesy of Anne Marzaroli, until a chance search on Google gave me the link.
This must surely be one of the most extraordinary collections of photos of 20th century Scotland, and Glasgow in particular.
Make a cup of tea or coffee, sit back and prepare to spend an hour or two looking back, in the company of a great photographer, at a visual portrait of a bygone black and white Scotland, modulated in ‘Shades of Grey’, the title of one of the iconic collections of his photos (and an infinitely preferable read to any other more recently published book which stole that title).
