Scope and Content Coplawhill Tramway Works and Tram Depot, 25 Albert Drive, Glasgow (Glasgow City council area) This large complex started as a horse-tram depot built for the takeover by Glasgow Corporation of horse-tram services in the city. When the city tramways were electrified in 1899-1900 tramcar building and maintenance workshops were added. This view shows the south east frontage of the workshop section, which was on a triangular site. The large erecting shops were at the far end, and the horse-tram depot is out of sight on the right. After 1962, when the tramways finally closed, part of the works was converted into a transport museum, and a museum store. The museum was moved to the Kelvin Hall some years later, and the area is now a venue for performing and visual arts. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
