Wheels Around Renfrewshire

Wheels Around Renfrewshire

Wheels Around Renfrewshire Wheels Around Renfrewshire. Prior to regionalisation in 1975, the county of Renfrewshire stretched north of the Clyde to include Yoker and parts of Scotstoun, while also reaching as far west as Gourock. Complementing Wheels Around Paisley, this book includes dozens of photographs illustrating numerous aspects of the county's transport past. The much-loved Renfrew Ferry features prominently, as do the trams and buses that connected with it. Elsewhere there are views of such diverse subjects as the scrapyard at Linwood Toll, a horse-drawn water cart in Barrhead, Dugald Semple's caravan at Bridge of Weir, and an early Castlebank Laundry lorry made by Albion Motors of Scotstoun. Classic photos of Renfrew Airport have been included as planes have wheels too! Robert Grieves' captions are detailed and illuminating, providing historical background that will interest general readers as well as the transport fraternity. Locations illustrated include: Port Glasgow, Brookfield, Kilbarchan, Greenock, Newton Mearns, Thornliebank, Paisley, Renfrew, Bishopton and Bridge of Weir.
