Got a copy of maps of the area from 1896, and 1934 - unfortunately I had to sign a piece of paper saying I wouldn't upload them to the internet - thought it was a bit mad - surely that's out of copyright now?

anyway - these maps have given me an idea of what was there before it was levelled to make way for the M8... The Anderston footbridge looks like it would have run along the north boundary line of the grounds of the Anderston United Presbyterian Church and the south side of the Bishop St. Engineering works.

Anderston United Presbyterian Church - then Anderston Free Church (from 1900 onward) - viewed from South.  The footbridge is situated somewhat behind where this church was.

Bishop St. Engineering Works, with foundry to right, viewed from West - If the footbridge was in this shot it, we would probably see the West end of it on the right side of the photo leading away from the viewpoint.
