Jamaica Bridge, Glasgow

This bridge across the River Clyde in Glasgow has had three names at various times in its history …. Glasgow Bridge, Broomielaw Bridge and Jamaica Bridge. This photograph, taken in the late Edwardian period, shows the reliance on horse-power at the time. It’s interesting that we still use that term to measure an engine’s power output. A couple of the new-fangled electric tram cars are crossing the bridge and we’ve rediscovered the benefits of those too! The bridge to the left is the Calendonian Railway bridge.
