Barrowland Revisited

Barrowland, Glasgow, July, 1973

Been going through the archives, trying to get them in order (almost there!), and ran across the negative of another picture I had taken but never seen. Barrowland is a flea market/concert venue, I was truly an "accidental tourist" on this occasion, having just wandered in while on a day trip to Glasgow from Edinburgh.

It is as mundane a scene as could be imagined, although the passing of time bestows it with an interest for me: fashions, the cold weather that summer, those anonymous people in it, and the grayness of it all; it would be a completely different picture if it had been in color.
