A fine selection of photographs show Falkirk at its early twentieth century best. Its trams, horse-drawn carriages, the gleaming new bus station and some of the old closes and wynds are all captured. Elsewhere you'll find the Regal cinema, Grahamston station, the famous Bainsford Bridge over the canal and pictures of the Carron Ironworks and Mungal Foundry. There are great shots of the town's giant ice-rink (long closed) and the BBC's Westerglen radio transmitter facilities, plus a selection of pictures of Camelon.
Note: In 2002 the Forth & Clyde and Union Canals were reopened and are now connected to each other by the Falkirk Wheel, an incredible rotating boat lift. Its construction and design is covered fully in another of our titles by Guthrie Hutton – Scotland's Millennium Canals. (Please refer to our Canals and Shipping page for more information.)
