Scope and Content St Andrew's Suspension Bridge, Glasgow Green and Adelphi Street, Glasgow This bridge was built 1853-5 for the use of workers travelling between housing in Bridgeton and Calton and the cotton spinning and weaving mills of Hutchesontown. It was designed by Neil Robson, engineer and Charles O'Neill, architect. This shows the bridge from the north (Glasgow Green) end. The classical pylons are made of cast iron, and were designed by O'Neill. The chains and deck were by Robson. To the rear is the United Co-operative Baking Society's biscuit bakery. This bridge replaced a ferry, hazardous when the river was in spate. The contractors for its construction were P & W MacLellan, later well-known as bridge builders. The Paisley firm of Hanna, Donald & Wilson were sub-contractors. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
