In the middle of the 1960s the locally based photographer Eugene Jean Méhat (1920-2000) made a photographic survey of the town of Greenock. He recorded over 600 images of the streets of Greenock during an era when there was much redevelopment and many buildings and streets were fast disappearing. His archive now stands as a record for future generations, a unique survey of Greenock in the 1960s.
