The Steve Tiesdell Flickr image collection has been extensively updated. The Collection now comprises of photographic sets from UK Cities, International Cities, European Cities, Scottish Towns, Scottish Cities and Major American Cities. The Collection forms part of the legacy of Dr. Steve Tiesdell, who taught and researched at the Department of Urban Studies at University of Glasgow. During his life, Steve was a prolific observer of places. Steve captured through photography, various urban conditions on his travels, with great focus on peoples interaction with place. The photographic collections form part of the Steve Tiesdell estate. The Tiesdell Family, with University of Glasgow have placed the image library catalogues in the trust of A+DS to share an open source learning resources.

Since summer 2012, we have been loading images onto a dedicated web based database. There are now seven collections available to use, with over 6200 images of all aspects of place making and Urban Conditions from Europe, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Singapore and USA.
