Glasgow, until recently, was a major European port and this publication describes its heyday, decline, neglect and subsequent redevelopment. Glasgow's Harbour's significant contribution to the 1939-45 war effort is also covered in some detail. Most of the docks and quays are featured in separate chapters. The book is profusely illustrated, in black and white, throughout. The period of greatest activity is highlighted with anecdotes - many humorous - told by those who worked on the River Clyde, such as pilots and tugmen. In addition to the basic text and photographs there is a detailed diagram of the Harbour area in 1962; early plans of Queen's Dock and Prince's Dock; a shipping advertisement from 1962; a comprehensive list of all ships named in the book. The book records an important part of Glasgow's heritage and a similar pattern of change, redevelopment and regeneration can be seen in other British ports whose roots lay in the 19th century.
