Nothing is visible in an area now occupied by housing and industrial buildings of a heavy anti-aircraft battery which is recorded on RAF vertical aerial photographs taken on 27 August 1942 (NLA 44, 5.58-5.59) and 17 March 1946 (106G/UK 1208, 5371-2). It was one of at least 43 such batteries that were constructed to protect the industries in the centre of Glasgow and along the banks of the River Clyde from aerial attack by the Luftwaffe during WWII.
