Jamaica Street, Glasgow
  • Scottish Art
Glasgow's Jamaica Street opened in 1763 at the height of the rum and sugar trade. It runs into Glasgow Bridge spanning the River Clyde in the city centre. To this day it is as busy as it looks in this nineteenth-century photograph. Although the Valentine company specialised in views with a commercial tourist appeal, it also documented well known streets and their buildings.
