Where once ships unloaded cargo and people, and industrial goods and emigrants departed from Glasgow now are bushy trees and flower beds.  

This is the Broomielaw today - to be exact, it is the area opposite at the bottom end of Washington Street where I was paying a visit the Clyde Cruising Club office.  There were no ships plying the Clyde here. However moored just out of the picture is the old Renfrew ferry where gigs, I presume, still go on.

Walking up Washington Street to the office block I passed waste ground  - been like that for years. Other old buildings are still in use and being used as, for example, scrap merchants and studios for rock bands (honest!).
