Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

This photograph shows Glasgow Bridge (sometimes called Jamaica Bridge since it is at the bottom of Jamaica Street). The shot was taken from the embankment alongside the River Clyde which is allowing fine reflections on its surface.

The bridge was built in 1899 to replace an earlier, narrower bridge designed by Thomas Telford. By popular demand, the new bridge was designed as a replica of the old bridge and had wider arches to accommodate larger vessels.

The bridge is now protected as a category B listed building.

If you follow this link you will see some absolutely amazing historical photographs of the bridge showing how the various types of transport changed over the years.

I hope you enjoy it, Bev :-)

If you follow this link you will be able to see the photograph in its original size.
