Our photographers captured the city and its people in all their glory throughout the decade that saw Cats come to the King’s and the Scottish Parliament come to Glasgow….

In October 1998, autumn leaves were in full bloom as a group of walkers explored Pollok Park.
Art and science were celebrated in Pollok Park in 1996, where a Wild Week brought schoolchildren from across the city in for a range of fun activities.
Sarah Cunningham, 8, and 12-year-old Maytal Wolfe were delighted to pose for our photographers after getting into the spirit of things.
In 1994, the worldwide phenomenon that was Cats, the musical, came to Glasgow on a UK tour. The cast included Sonia Swaby as Grizabella and we got a chance to peek behind the scenes as she applied the finishing touches to her impressive make-up.
The Glasgow Gang Show used to be an entertainment staple on the city calendar.
One of the longest-running Gang Shows, it was held each year at the King’s and other theatres in the city, from 1936 until the early 2010s. Organised by the Scouts, it featured boys and girls performing songs, dances and comedy sketches in a fundraising spectacular.
In 1992, we captured the cast in full flow.
Murals have always created drama in Glasgow, and back in 1990, it was the same.
This beautiful creation by city artist Calum MacKenzie decorated the gable end of the Tron Theatre and heralded the start of the celebrations for Glasgow’s reign as 1990 City of Culture.
