810 One of those rare pictures, of any system, that shows both a trolleybus and a tram in the same picture. The location is at Mount Florida, near Hampden Park Football Ground. The trolleybus is probably on route 105, operating from Queens Cross to Clarkston.

This slide was sold by Old Motor Magazine, a general interest monthly PSV magazine that was published in the 1960s. Sadly this excellent periodical, available on a subscription only basis, did not last very many years, having a circulation of less than 1,000 copies. It would probably find a more eager market today.

Ken Thorpe and I arranged a farewell tour of the Glasgow system on the day of closure transporting 160 enthusiasts from the London area in three coaches. Two trams were hired and every bit of the system then open was covered, including parts that had not seen a tram for a number of years.

The pictures show the two hired trams before the tour commenced.
