Sorry, this product is currently unavailable.
As motor traffic began to proliferate after the war, the trams were seen to be part of the reason for the growing congestion in the city. New electric trolleybuses were introduced to replace them on some routes before both they and the last of the trams were swept away in the 1960s with the final triumph of the motor car.
These films, made mostly in the 1950s and `60s, are packed with memories of that era. They recall the fashions, the shop fronts, the cars, the street-scapes, the factories and the suburbs of a city which has changed radically in the years which have followed. Produced for those who know and love Glasgow, as much as the transport enthusiast, this programme will open the eyes of those who remember the city in those halcyon post war decades.
