Reminisce on Glasgow’s ‘caurs’ with a look back at the Last Day of the Trams.

Sixty years ago on September 4th 1962, Glasgow’s tram cars took their final journeys through the city. Join us on Saturday the 3rd of September to mark the occasion with a selection of archive films that capture those final days, and the years leading up to the closure of the trams.

Highlights include the earliest footage we hold of the trams in 1901, a behind-the-scenes look at how trams operated in the 1930s, and a special film from the BFI which offers a poignant look at the last day of the trams.

The films will be played on a loop from 12pm until 4pm, so drop in when you can.

CINE[STHESIA] screenings showcase hidden gems from National Library of Scotland’s Moving Image Archive. From the Eerie and surreal, to the nostalgic and factual, each screening is carefully curated by staff or special guests.

The films shown are preserved as part of NLS Moving Image Collection.
