Applecross St bascule bridge. The quadrant plate is still there (and the deck repaired), but the bridge is no longer hand-cranked. I think the tenements were in Oakbank Terrace but am prepared to be corrected on this.   March 1974

North Spiers Wharf, about a dozen years before these monumental warehouses, built as the City of Glasgow Grain Mills but latterly a whisky bond, were converted into flats.   October 1975

North Spiers Wharf. The Palladian style of the Canal Office, built around 1812 and replacing an earlier building, hints at the prosperity of the canal company at that time.   October 1975

By the Cut of Junction between Port Dundas and the Monkland Canal, looking east to Garngadhill and Townhead Parish Church. The Glasgow Garnkirk and Coatbridge railway brought coal to the city, and this spur served a coal depot on Pinkston Rd. The St Rollox Sawmill, which faced on to Baird St, is on the other bank. The M8 runs here now.

The bascule bridge which carried Glebe St over the cut to Pinkston Rd, with the bridgekeeper’s cottage. This photo and the previous were taken by my late brother and I don’t have a date for them, but around 1964 is likely. The cottage was demolished in 1965 and the bridge in 1967.

River Kelvin below the Kelvin Aqueduct. The chimney and the further buildings were part of Kelvindale Paper Mill, the largest and last-surviving paper mill in the city. It closed around this time. The mill was founded in 1746 and was of course powered by water for many years, with the V-shaped weir on the right supplying the water to a large lade. The weir is still there, though not the iron footbridge which gave access to it. I have no confirmation that the riverside ruins were part of the mill complex but it seems very likely.   June 1976

These piers, still standing, carried a single railway track over to the paper mill.   June 1976




The rough position and aspect of the last two photos. Modern housing covers the site. of the mill.
