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.
A parody of the University's official staff magazine, 'Prism'. The only issue held is no.1, November 1991. An editorial note on the last page indicates that 'This magazine will be published spasmodically. The next issue of Spasm will appear once the editors have dealt with the numerous law suits arriving from the first issue.'

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.
