Riverside Museum from the air – the latest aerial photography

leave a comment »

Yesterday I wrote about Riverside Museum attaining its Glasgow postcode, and published a Google Map satellite image to go with it. Although it’s good to see the museum in relation to nearby Govan, Partick and Finnieston, the image is fairly old – Riverside’s construction has progressed considerably since it was taken. As proof, here’s the latest picture of Riverside Museum from the air.

You can clearly see the River Kelvin joining the River Clyde, while the Clydeside Expressway cuts across the image’s top left. If you look carefully you can see a wee boat by the quay wall. In a few months, the Tall Ship Glenlee will be berthed there.

The aerial image itself dates from 1 September 2010, and was taken for our building contractor BAM’s visual record of the site’s development.
