Wheels Around Inverclyde

Author : Robert Grieves
ISBN : 9781840331592
Cover : paperback
Price : £6.99

A varied and interesting selection of photographs highlights the various modes of transport that were once common in and around Port Glasgow, Greenock, Gourock, Kilmacolm and Wemyss Bay. Horse-drawn trams at Ashton, a Port Glasgow Gas Department steam wagon, Greenock Co-op's fleet of Rolls Royce hearses, and lorries carrying ropes from Gourock Ropeworks are here. The area's local bus companies are captured here before they were swallowed up by big national concerns, and there are pictures of steam trains chuffing through Kilmacolm station (now closed). Paddle wheels are featured and nostalgic street scenes of the towns will capture the interest of transport fans and Inverclyde locals alike.
