Summary:Depicts the industrial development of Glasgow, particularly of ship-building from the eighteenth century. Also examines Glasgow's attempts to tackle the social problems brought about by industrialization. This film has been digitized because it has a high level of Vinegar Syndrome (chemical deterioration). That condition will prevent any captured images from being 100% perfect. Our goal is to present the content of the film in a digital format that is as good and the least distracting as possible.
