Taken from Victoria Bridge, Glasgow's Clyde Street was the terminal for Western and Central bus services before the opening of Anderston Bus station. No passenger facilities were provided and parking for buses appear to have been rather haphazard with examples of Fleetlines, Lodekkas and Titans in view.
Hidden underneath the cars parked was a single tram line which allowed tramway mineral wagons to load up with stone and sand and connected with Stockwell Street. These rails were only removed when the riverside walkway was upgraded a few years ago. The tall mast belonged to the "Carrick" berthed along side, which would deserve a whole chapter to herself! Glasgow's "other cathedral "St Andrews" is just visible, nowadays splendidly cleaned up.
