Glasgow has seen more than its fair share of history.
From two World Wars to the booming locomotive and shipbuilding industry, our "Dear Green Place" was at the forefront of the industrial age for over past century, but a lot has changed.
One blogger, from Vancouver in Canada no less, has took it upon himself to scour the world searching for some history, matching up the classics with modern snaps, and where else to grab some history than Glasgow.
Andrew Farris has traveled across Canada, Japan and the United Kingdom for his blog 'On This Spot', with his most recent adventure bringing him to the banks of the Clyde at the end of February.
Now a great landmark for some lovely pictures, the Finnieston Crane was once in full swing lifting locomotives - with this original captured in 1955.
Now Cafe Nero, this notable St Enoch Square building worked as an old subway station - with this original pic snapped up in 1914.
The commotion of Union Street clearly hasn't changed, but the mode of transport has - with this 1920's snap showcasing Glasgow's trams and horse and carriages.
The underbelly of Glasgow Central Station has recently been released with the Central Tours, but this snap from 1877 shows the foundation of the station itself.
Glasgow's River Clyde has clearly quietened down since the hustle and bustle of the 1900.
This snap was captured before the Kingston Bridge was completed in 1970, showing Glaswegians in 1922 crossing the Clyde by ferry boat.
Andrew, who's mother was born in Glasgow before emigrating to Canada in the 1950s, spoke about his blog and the city's historic past.
He said: "The study of history has always been my biggest passion in life and I've been planning my life around traveling the world and indulging that passion.
"Since I have some background in web design I figured it would be worthwhile to make a blog about history and travel, giving me something productive to do while I backpacked.
"When I returned home to Vancouver, Canada, I put together Then and Now photo essays for that city and nearby Victoria. Both pages quickly went viral and the response has been overwhelming."
Once a busy heartland of Glasgow's police force back when this was taken in 1931, the Central Police Office on Turnbull Street is now set to be transformed into a hotel.
Andrew added: "Glasgow was special to me because my grandparents lived in Newton Mearns and my grandfather worked in the shipyards.
"In the 1950s they emigrated to Canada with my eight-year-old mother. This was my first visit to the city I'd heard so much about and I really loved it.
"Glasgow has such a proud imperial past, which we can see in the old photos, before competition from abroad strangled the great industrial enterprises in the city and led Glasgow to stagnate until it became the heart of the original rust belt.
"This is what makes many of the Glasgow photos so powerful: they show amazing buildings in the heart of the city that have since been boarded up, or demolished in favour of modern buildings of questionable architectural merit."
Finally, how could we forget the Duke of Wellington's statue? It seems like Glaswegians in 1885 weren't too fond of bright orange cone hats...
He said: "I'm going to try backpacking through most of the major metropolitan areas in the United Kingdom and develop partnerships with various sources of archival photos.
"I wouldn't object to any donations that will allow me to continue living here on my shoestring budget.
"I'm also attempting to set up a system where people can submit photo sets from whatever cities they live in, so that this can rapidly expand into a global network of Then and Now photos."
