Have you looked and screw down mirror clips? They come in a variety of sizes.

The photos get attached to the board, then the glass is attached.

If you do NOT provide a gap between the photos and the glass you may not be able to remove the photos without destroying them.

Photos tend to stick to glass that they are tight contact with and peel the emulsion from the picture when you try to remove the photo.
