Earlston Avenue. Long gone. Linked Rhymer Street and Roystonhill to Royston Road with the back courts looking onto the Monkland Canal. Now a school football pitch.

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.

AEC Matador. The Matador was distinctive with its flat fronted cab with gently curved roof, wheels at the corners and a flat load carrying area covered by a canvas or tarpaulin tilt. The cab was made from ash and clad in steel. It was equipped with a winch (7-ton load in its case) like all artillery tractors. About 9,000 Matadors were built, some going to the Royal Air Force (RAF). For the British Army it fulfilled a role between field artillery tractors (FATs) such as the Morris C8 Quad, which towed smaller guns such as the 25-pounder gun-howitzer, and the Scammell Pioneer, used for towing the 7.2-inch howitzer. It was commonly used to tow the 5.5-inch medium gun and the QF 3.7-inch AA gun. The Matador was found to be a generally useful vehicle and was adapted for other roles including carrying a 25-pounder gun. The RAF used Matadors in the flat bed form for load carrying. The 6-wheeler Matador Type A with refuelling pumps and equipment by Zwicky Ltd, was used as a refuelling tanker, capable of carrying 2,500 Imperial gallons of fuel and also for towing ashore Short Sunderland flying boats at their stations. In 1942/43 for the North African campaign some Matadors mounted the 6-pounder anti-tank gun to give the AEC Mk1 Gun Carrier "Deacon". The Canadian Army used the Matador during the Second World War. Post war the Matador was found in civilian use as a recovery truck, a showmans vehicle, and general contractor use. It was also useful for forestry work because of its good off-road performance.
