This article outlines the photographic sources held in the historical case file generated by the University of Glasgow's Department of Forensic Medicine and Science and by two of its former Regius Professors, John Glaister Senior (1856-1932) and John Glaister Juniour (1892-1971). The contexts in which photographs were taken circulated and used, from scenes of crime, to the laboratory and the courtroom will be explored in relation to some of the Glaisters' individual cases to some of Scotland's most notorious crimes.
