Glasgow Bridges I

From Millennium Bridge to Victoria Bridge

This print presents ten Glasgow bridges starting at the Millennium Bridge at the Glasgow Science Centre and moving upriver to the Victoria Bridge. The western end of this section of the River Clyde has recently undergone significant residential, leisure and commercial redevelopment on both north and south banks and has included the construction of three footbridges. At the eastern end, near the city centre, we have some of Glasgow’s oldest surviving bridges, road, rail and pedestrian.
