Broad Close, No. 167 High Street
Carbon print, 1870s
Tonality- 10/10, some original retouching; 282 x 232 mm., on printed mount
$1750.

Between 1868 and 1871, Annan produced a series of commissioned photographs for the City of Glasgow to document slum areas listed for demolition. Annan's carbon prints, published in 1877, very much suited their dramatic sombre subjects and transcended a mere record of the old buildings. 'However inadvertently, he did give us the first thorough photographic representation available of the dwelling places and inhabitants of an urban slum.' (Anita Mozley, 1977).

Photogravure, 1868
Tonality- 10/10; 222 x 177 mm., printed on paper sheet
$385.

This photogravure was printed by Thomas Annan's son, J. Craig Annan, in a limited edition in 1900 from the 1868 negative. Between 1868 and 1871, Thomas Annan had produced a series of commissioned photographs for the City of Glasgow to document slum areas listed for demolition.
  
Close, No. 61 Saltmarket, Glasgow
Carbon print, c. 1868
10/10; 259 x 201 mm, mounted
$SOLD

Atypically, there are no people visible in this Annan documentary study. Nevertheless, the viewer is left in little doubt what conditions were like for local residents in what constitutes one of the bleakest photographs from the 19th century. In the 1900 photogravure edition of this work, published by Annan's son James Craig Annan, the plate was retouched to considerably lighten the 'black hole'. The effect was to considerably alter the dark mood seen here in the original.
