Kelvin Way Bridge, Glasgow, Scotland March 2013

Kelvin Way Bridge

Statues on the Kelvin Way Bridge in Glasgow. We used to live on Radnor Street and I would cross this bridge to the playground in the local park. I remember this bridge in the heatwave of 1976 when my mother carried buckets full of water from a distribution point to our bathtub where it was kept as drinking water – there was a drought.

Some of the statues of this bridge ended up in the River Kelvin after being hit by a bomb in World War II. An arm from one of the statues was even found in the river as late as the 1990’s.
