of the images were taken in the Queens Park area
of the City's southside. However, here the
photographer ventured north of the River Clyde to
record this image of a garage in Clydebank. The
tram lines in the foreground indicate that this
garage was probably located on Dumbarton Road.
A further image in the collection (not
presented here) shows the Yoker War Memorial
which commemorates the fallen of WW1 (1914-1918)
The war memorial is located in
a park which also borders Dumbarton Road and it
is probable that the two photographs were taken
the same day.
It is assumed that the
photographer had some particular interest in the
Yoker memorial since many others are to be found
around the city. The image of the memorial helps
to date the negatives since the memorial would
have been erected shortly after the end of the
first world war circa 1919 (see also Victoria Road image).
