Glasgow Luftwaffe aerial photograph of eastern Glasgow, taken during World War II. The armour-plate works at Parkhead Forge (B) would have been an important potential target, but also of interest to the Luftwaffe were the twin gasholders of Provan Gasworks (A) and St Rollox Locomotive Works (C). The German Luftwaffe took aerial photographs of parts of Scotland throughout World War II. The photographs were used for intelligence work, such as selecting targets, assessing bombing accuracy and finding equipment and defensive positions. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
