Glasgow's past

Thinking about Glasgow's past - especially transport - the route of the proposed cycle path will go from the clyde, over the railway at Anderston and over the M8 (where an old tram yard used to be) so it pretty much incorporates all of Glasgows transport history - to cap it all it will probably be the route of choice for any visitors to Glasgow to travel by foot or bike from Central Station to the new Riverside Transport Museum.

So here's links to:
The Riverside Museum pageappeal site and faqs (due to open soon - can't wait)
The Scottish Maritime Museum
and what I've mostly been looking at: The Scottish Maritimes photostream on flickr - which has an interesting collection of historical imagery...
