Notes on the Geography of The United Kingdom: Glasgow Core: Photo 8

world pictures The United Kingdom: Glasgow Core

Come downstream a couple of blocks and you bump into the Clyde Navigation Trust, created in 1809 to maintain and improve the river's channel for 18 miles upstream from Cardross, opposite Port Glasgow. The building was built in two stages. First, in the 1880s, came the bit up the street. Then came the "bravura" corner of 1905-08. (That's Williamson in a better humor.) The dome is flanked by Ceres leading a bull on one side and, on the other, Amphitrite with seahorses.

It's more than a different century; it's a different universe. The Authority was privatized in 1992 and the organization, now part of Peel Ports, was renamed Clydeport. (You know the disease, where Mr. Deep Pockets loves to create a name by mashing words together.)
