Notes on the Geography of The United Kingdom: Glasgow Core: Photo 17

world pictures The United Kingdom: Glasgow Core

If the river forms the southern boundary of the city's core, the western boundary must be this, the M8, a motorway completed in 1972 and primarily connecting Glasgow and Edinburgh. We're looking south here (that's the landmark dome of the Mitchell Library), and the river is about a kilometer ahead. The road jumps across it and continues to the city's airport. Behind us, it continues north about half a kilometer before making a 90-degree turn to the right and forming the third side of a box enclosing the city's core. (Protests put a kabosh on construction of the fourth side of the box, which was envisioned in the 1945 Bruce Report and which would have run north-south along the ancient High Street and done a fine job of spoiling the city's cathedral.)
