leave a comment »

What links a horse-drawn carriage and a car? The new Riverside Museum in Glasgow, opening in 2011, will show off the city’s definitive collection of Scottish cars. In the short clip below, curator Alex Robertson describes the coachbuilding display that will reveal how the men who built horse-drawn carriages turned their expert hands to constructing the earliest motorcars.

This webcast is one of a series of broadcasts published by the Riverside Museum Appeal. Click here to watch more of the RMA’s videos examining Riverside’s displays.
