Here is a super short film of the City in its heyday when the docks were jam-packed with ships, (unlike now!) loading and unloading everything from oranges and ore to buses and locomotives. Health and safety was no more than a bunnet, and to watch the steelworkers making pig-iron from molten metal with not even a pair of gloves makes me shiver! Great wee film, although silent, brings back huge memories for us of a 'certain age'

Don't forget to watch it in full frame. yes.gif

Very good Rab, although I think the guy with the oil can at the steam engines needs a bit of oiling himself tongue.gif

You're right there Ash - mind you, he's been at it for quite a few years!

I wonder if anyone spotted the ill-fated 'City of Benares' in the docks. She was almost new then. A ship with an awfully tragic end when torpedoed in a convoy with the loss of many young lives. Story here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS_City_of_Benares

Sad to see another piece of Glasgow's industrial past being demolished ,Bislands bakery with its iconic white lettered name reduced to rubble ...when it's gone it's gone .....

Not half Wombat. Ah wish they'd stop muckin' up our food. I bet the toffs don't have to eat this rubbish
that we get. Even the sourdough loaves that I find in my travels are not the same. sad.gif

I think it's the chemicals they put in to try to make it last longer.

When I bake a loaf, it has to be eaten within 24 hours otherwise it goes stale soon after.

By the way does anyone know what happened to Rab?

I was wondering about Rab and THH and some others hope all are well.

I wish they'd stop tampering with our food but then greed prevails in every aspect of life these days.

Regarding the bread do you think they've done something equally horrific with the grain?
