Excellent then and now.  Great alignment of the photos well!  That is hard to do.

An amazing technique.

To ge the mountains and the scenery to merge between a time period of 67 years is amazing. Who ever thought of doing this had a brilliant idea.

Really wonderful. I can't believe that I saw this very place over the summer at the Clyde weekend back in July. I would love to have see it for real in 1934. It would have been a real experience.

Wonderful thing to share rob.

Brilliant!  :)

I like how the focus was the farm hands cutting their crops with a scythe with the view of the ship in the background. Then the same field with the bales of hay that have been harvested using modern machinery with the College sitting on the John Brown's site where World famous ships were built. 

I was looking at another site that used this technique with photos of old and new Clydebank, which I will post in the relevant topic.
I was proud to be involved with planning QE2's 50 year conference in September 2017 in Clydebank
