A spectacular rainbow over the A8 west of Edinburgh, near the Gogar Roundabout, after a brief heavy shower. This was taken by Serena but I have uploaded it as she doesn't currently have access to the photo galleries.

Old A8, Langbank

There's nothing especially notable about the old A8 through Langbank; there's a few painted on traffic calming measures, and the centre white line has been moved as seen here to accomodate parking. Some of the old grey granite surface can be seen showing through in places. Existing A8 just to the right (road sign on it visible).

Inchinnan Bridge which crosses the White Cart Water near Renfrew was opening as part of Renfrewshire's Doors Open Days events on 09/09/06. The three times it lifted it attracted large crowds to witness the now rare occurence.

British Trolleybuses - Glasgow - Geograph - 1205542.jpg
British Trolleybuses - Glasgow
On its way south to Clarkston on route 105, trolleybus TB116 is about to cross the Clyde at Victoria Bridge. It would have only a few more hours of life - this was the last day of trolleybus operation in Glasgow. Many such closures seemed to take place in dull or rainy conditions - this was an exception.

In the background can be seen the bridge over Stockwell Street carrying the railway lines out of St. Enoch Station. It has completely disappeared, as seen in <a href='http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/943601'>NS5964 : Stockwell Street</a>. Particularly noticeable is the general blackness of the buildings in 1967. This was typical of large towns and was the result of years of smoke laden atmosphere resulting from domestic and industrial burning of coal.
