Photographer's Note

One of the typical street corners of Glasgow.

This one is located in the South Side (South of the river Clyde) area called Govanhill.
This was taken using my main camera. A reality so subtle 6x17 pinhole camera. This camera travels everywhere with me.
I spend a fair bit of time in the area. It is one of the few places in Glasgow that's not been reborn, (bulldozed and rebuilt) retaining much of it's late 19th and early 20th century buildings.
The exposure time was around 6 seconds, catching the traffic moving around the street corners.

From Wikipedia
"The history of the area is linked to the Dixon family. A prominent ironmaster, William Dixon opened blast furnaces to the north of Govanhill which became known as Dixon's Blazes.
A company village called Fireworks Village was situated on the site of the later Burgh of Govanhill. The village was built by Dixon for his workers, who worked in his Little Govan Colliery. rnThe area itself was formed in 1877 and the main avenue that runs the length of it is called Dixon Avenue. Some of the local streets were named after the daughters of William Dixon"
