Montague Glover (1898 – 1983) was a British freelance architect and private photographer. He is most notable for his depiction of homosexual life in London during the early to mid-20th century through private photographs taken primarily for his own enjoyment. His photographs tend to document 'rough trade', the working class and members of the military. See Gardiner, A Class Apart - The Private Pictures of Montague Glover (1992). His work is rarely seen in trade as the great majority of his work is held in a major private collection.
