Wow    

These photos are almost as important as the Gorbals ones. Lots of detail and full of special features like the train being lifted by the Finnieston Crane.

They should be in a book but I am just so happy that we have the privilege of seeing them here.

They just about take your breath away

That was a fantastic set of pictures. I particularly loved the harbour tunnel ones. I've been fascinated with the two (That I know of) tunnels. I know the pedestrian one at the clyde tunnel is still open, but survival instinct tell me that it would probably be a great idea to NEVER go down it, at least not without a decent sized group of people.

The harbour tunnel is one that I would love to walk through. I imagine there's no exit at the north side because of the casino, but I would be quite happy to double back. Is it still sound? Is it still dry?

I loved the old corpy colours on the Leyland Atlantean which is in the background of the third Carrick shot. I used to love the unique rocking sensation that you felt on the Atlanteans when they were idling. It was the worst thing in the world to be on a bike behind one though!

Peace.

I'm left almost speechless... thanks so much for posting those photos.

For everyones information, one of those little passnger ferries (no. 12 I think) still exists and spends most of the time tied up behind the Glenlee, coming out every year for the river festival.

And this building...



It's a travesty that such a beautiful building fell fowl of the wreckers ball :(
