This photograph is one of a series which charts the progress of the building of the Glasgow docks at the end of the nineteenth century, when the city was a centre for world trade and considered as the 'Second City of the Empire'. This image is a record of one of the stages of the construction work and demonstrates the pride which people took in the large-scale engineering works of the time.
