Autograph album containing signatures, verses, and sketches in pen, ink and watercolour. Miniature black and white photographs of several of the contributors are pasted on to the pages. Much of the content dates from 1905, with the latest contribution dating from 1917. Most of the contributors were trainee teachers at the Glasgow Church of Scotland Training College (CSTC), also known as Dundas Vale Training College, and the first page contains an inscription signed by the owner's mother, Annie B. McLellan, dated 18 January 1905. This evidence suggests that the album originally belonged to Sarah M. McLellan, who trained at the CSTC from 1903-1905.

Art exercises and notes from Neilson's studies at the Glasgow United Free Church Training College, 1904-1906. These have been trimmed and bound up as a volume, divided into the following sections: Nature Study; Object Drawing; Large Scale Practice; Clay-Modelling; Stencilling, and Ornament and Architecture. A final, unnamed section contains printed copies of drawings, some of which are annotated in pencil by Neilson. Five loose, small drawings of roses in pencil and watercolour are tucked inside the front board of the volume.
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.
Panoramic photograph (by the London Panoramic Company) of staff and students of Jordanhill Training College 1931-1932 standing in front of the College. It shows the first ever third and second year students to study for the Diploma in Physical Education. These students had previously begun their training at Dunfermline College of Hygiene and Physical Education. It also shows the first year of the Scottish School of Physical Education students.
Written on the back of the frame was 'Photograph shows the first 3rd year ever for the College diploma (2 years previously at Dunfermline). Also the 2nd year men for the College diploma (1 year previously at Dunfermline). Also the first 1st year of the SSPE (on the g[ras]s in front in white flannels).'
Autograph book of Louisa Jessie Fletcher, student at the Glasgow Provincial Training College from 1914-1916, and James Maxwell Dewar Teape, Sub-Lieutenant, Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve. The book contains autographs, sketches and verses that are individually dated from 1916-1920. It appears to have passed from Louisa's possession into James's possession around the second half of 1916. The earlier sketches and signatures are those of Louisa's fellow College students and staff, and the later ones are those of James's fellow servicemen. The nature of the relationship between Louisa and James is not known, but he was not a student of the College. He worked as a Gas Department Clerk after the First World War and married a Glasgow schoolteacher, Isabella Breckenridge Falconer, in 1920.
