Newshot Island. Now very silted up and no longer an island. Remains of vessels destroyed in the Glasgow Dockside Fire of 1914 were towed and left here, scanty remains can still be seen at low tide.

P1 children from Kilbowie Primary School made animations inspired by this image and their own observations of the same area today. Their animations show a day in the life of Clydebank. P6 children from St Eunan's Primary School were also inspired by this image to imagine what the same area might be like in the future. Their animations show stories of what might happen in this area 100 years from now.
