Old photographs showing one of Scotland's most important public works being built have been found in a skip. The photos show the construction of one of the Katrine Aqueducts, which take water to treatment works that supply 1.3 million people around Glasgow. The aqueducts were part of a radical 19th Century plan to supply fresh water from Loch Katrine to Glasgow, 35 miles away. [Railscot note: the photographs include views of the temporary railway lines, aerial railways and one of the observatory/semaphore towers used during construction.]
