' Bridge over Monkland Canal, Roystonhill, Glasgow (City of Glasgow council area) This bridge was built to carry Roystonhill (originally Garngad hill) over the Monkland Canal, at the north end of the canal's Townhead basin. It probably replaced an earlier wooden bridge of the standard Monkland Canal pattern. This view shows the bridge from the north west, looking towards the site of the basin. The canal had been drained, and the water culverted, to make way for motorway construction. The cast iron beams were cast by the Hydepark Foundry. This bridge was demolished soon after this photograph was taken in 1966. The Monkland Canal had been disused since the 1930s, but was maintained in water because it supplies water to the summit level of the Forth and Clyde Canal. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN. '
