This map, from an old Clyde Navigation Trust publication, shows the various quays and facilities along the river over the 2 mile stretch from the Broomielaw to the mouth of the River Kelvin in the early 1960s. The subjects of this album of pictures are Springfield Quay, General Terminus Quay, Mavisbank Quay, Plantation Quay and the three basin Princes Dock. As can be seen from the map, ships sailed from these quays to places as far flung as Burma, France, Belgium, New Zealand, the West Indies, Canada and the Great Lakes, India, South Africa, East Africa, Pakistan, Persian Gulf, South America and Sweden. In recent years the areas formerly known as Mavisbank Quay, Plantation Quay and Princes Dock have been collectively renamed 'Pacific Quay' for marketing purposes but that is a name that would be strange to those that knew the Clyde in the halcyon days when it was a busy international port.
