Sixties Glasgow: A look back to Partick in 1969

A look back to Glasgow city life in Partick in 1969

Partick remains one of Glasgow’s most recognisable neighbourhoods with there always being something going on in the West End area.

From its heart on Dumbarton Road, which still has several bustling shops, cafes and restaurants, there have been dramatic changes to the district over the past 50-plus years.

There are however still many similar features that are prominent to this day throughout the different streets with Gardner Street remaining one of the steepest hills any Glaswegian can challenge.

The following eight photographs aim to show Glasgow life in Partick during the late sixties and the changing landscape of the area as elsewhere in the world, Woodstock Music and Art Fair was held in New York and Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first people to walk on the Moon during the Apollo 11 mission.
