The time it capsized after that storm, it lay for months on it's side. Then of course it was moored further up the Clyde. As it's the only one I know of, what others befell it?

It sank a few times..... they also filled it with concrete to try stop it sinking! (the idea was that it would seal the holes and stop water coming in but no, it just sank it)

If I'm talking about the very same HMS Carrick, it's sad latter history continues. Known previously as the City of Adelaide, there is another brave effort to achieve the seemingly impossible aqnd have her rescued and restored; see City of Adelaide website:

Which one? It had a few....


This one?



I haven't got a date for this shot at the moment, may be able to dig one up. It was between 1977 and 79 though.   I used to know why she keeled over, but not now. I've got a feeling it wasn't something as simple as a storm though, more to do with the tide and the way she was moored being a bit cackhanded. I've got a cousin who's ex-Merchant Navy, he tends to know about this sort of thing, I'll ask him. Failing that, the Herald microfiches in the Mitchell will tell all.

Yep, that's the one. I remember it lay in that position for some months but I always thought it was as a result of a storm, so maybe I was wrong.

Thats a bit before my lifetime... but I do remember it still being moored there when I moved to Glasgow and then reading about how it sank over night at least twice

James: re. "Unknown - possibly Springburn Balgrayhill. Can someone confirm?" . This looks like the Bluevale & Whitevale tower blocks, between Duke Street & Gallowgate.

Edit: it would help if I put the relevant photos in:-



The first picture is definitely the Bluevale & Whitevale tower blocks, but the model
picture looks to me like the Balgrayhill scheme. The road at the bottom is Springburn
Road and the maisonettes are between the two towers and the main road. The
road at the far right is Hawthorn Street.



James H


Heard some nutter drove along the quarter of a mile connecting corridor ot them maisonettes on a motorbike in 1974.

They've only included the Viewpoint Flats, though. I wonder if the Balgrayhill ones (on Springburn Park side of the road) were an afterthought.



Cracking photos James. I love those models. Weird to see places you take for granted actually modelled as a future build.
