Histoire administrative

The photography firm of Turnbull & Sons was located at 75 Jamaica Street, Glasgow from 1865-1884, and at 10 Jamaica Street from 1885-1908. The company established a presence in Greenock in 1881 and later set up studios in Belfast, Larne, Hawick, Kilmarnock and London. J. G. Mainds appears to have been the Proprietor of the studios in both Greenock and Kilmarnock from about 1892, and the firm’s name was changed to Turnbull & Mainds around 1909.

Histoire archivistique

This photograph belonged to Clare Overand, whose aunt, Christina Terrace Watson (b 1901), took the two-year non-University course for the Teacher's General Certificate under the Glasgow Provincial Committee for the Training of Teachers, and is pictured on the far right of the seated front row. Ms Overand donated the photograph to the University of Strathclyde Archives and Special Collections in September 2015.

Portée et contenu

Formal group photograph of the female 'non-University' two-year General Certificate course cohort of 1919-1921. The students are pictured with several male and female staff members. The photograph was possibly taken outside the Stow Building in Cowcaddens, one of several sites on which students of the Glasgow Provincial Committee for the Training of Teachers were taught up to 1921. The Committee took possession of a new, purpose-built training college at Jordanhill in December 1919, and students were taught there from September 1921. The photograph is pasted onto a cream cardboard mount, on the bottom-right corner of which is embossed 'Turnbull & Mainds, 10 Jamaica Street, Glasgow'. There are no other annotations on the photograph or the mount.
