Today, I visited the new Riverside Museum on the banks of the River Clyde. This is a successor to the old Transport Museum and houses a wide collection of exhibits encompassing shipping, steam railway locomotives,vintage and veteran cars, motorcycles, tram cars, horse drawn vehicles, bicycles and ancient dug-out boats. Here is a selction of images:
