Old photos show Katrine aqueduct being built


"Old photographs showing one of Scotland's most important public works being built have been found in a skip. The photos show the construction of one of the Katrine Aqueducts, which take water to treatment works that supply 1.3 million people around Glasgow. The aqueducts were part of a radical 19th Century plan to supply fresh water from Loch Katrine to Glasgow, 35 miles away."


Plenty of railway and industrial interest including a Neilson Saddle Tank, some interesting wagons and a shunting horse. Also steam driven machinery.
