Govan Shed in the process of being built in 1947. The main structure was erected and clad with the original RPM sheeting, but the brick section on Clydebrae Street wasn't yet buit and the windows aren't installed on the Govan Road side of the building, nor in the roof lights.

Scotway House, 165 Castlebank Street. The 1885 building was the former office of Meadowside Shipyard - built by D&W Henderson, who took over the yard from founders Tod and McGregor in 1862. Plans for the original royal yacht – the predecessor of the Britannia – and a number of high class liners were drawn up in the office. The B-listed building out-lasted every single building in this image. By the turn of the millennium the building had become derelict, by 2015 it was in a dangerous condition. On the 20th May 2016 vandals gutted the building by setting it on fire. Weeks later it was demolished and confined to the history books forever.
