The Mac Photographic Archive

'The unfortunate fire at Glasgow School of Art on 23rd May 2014 destroyed much-loved parts of the Charles Rennie Mackintosh building on Renfrew Street. In an attempt to document the building for posterity, The Mac Photographic Archive allows students, alumni, staff, and tourists to upload their personal record of the school.

A current Google search will return a myriad of images of the exterior of the building. However, it is the intention of The Mac Photographic Archive to concentrate on gathering a comprehensive record of the interior of the building, from the people who have used it since its completion in 1909.

Users can tag their photos with the floor and room in which the photograph was taken, estimate the date and annotate accordingly.

Any suggestions or corrections are welcome, please contact:
