Looking back, we can see that Glasgow has gone through periods of huge change in its public transport. The steam-powered railway gave way to the electric 'Blue Train' and the modern diesel. Old railways disappeared and new routes took citizens from the new suburbs (or schemes) into the city. The paddle steamers disappeared from the Clyde as did the ferries, along with the ships and the shipyards. Trams and trolleybuses gave way to modern buses. The horse and cart disappeared to be replaced by ever larger petrol and then diesel lorries and vans. Having lived through many of these changes, the author marks the passing of the many modes of travel and transport by a nostalgic look back over more than a hundred years of change, the story accompanied by evocative photographs of what has been lost today.
