Until the 1960s, the Clyde was synonymous with the shipbuilding industry and many shipyards dotted both sides of the river all the way from Glasgow to Greenock. Today they have all but gone, waterside apartments, exhibition centres and light industrial units taking their place. But Scotland has many lost industries: from papermaking to gunpowder making, as well as whaling, the motor industry, steel making, coal mining, shipbreaking and locomotive manufacture. Once, Scotland was a heavily industrialised country, making all sorts of industrial goods, as well as food stuffs, cloth, coal, quarrying, paper, carpets, and other goods. From jam to jute, from motor cars to aeroplanes, from sewing machines to ships, Scotland made them all. Nowadays, the majority of the industries found in Scotland at the turn of the twentieth century have gone, replaced by newer forms of manufacture, from the drilling of oil to the electronics industry. Michael Meighan takes us on a trip down memory lane, when Scotland was an industrial powerhouse, making goods for the Empire and Commonwealth, as well as exporting to the world.
