The Second Vulcan, Glasgow
The Second Vulcan, Glasgow
The original Vulcan was the first iron boat to be built in Scotland, in 1819. It was intended to provide a passenger service between Edinburgh and Glasgow, but could not compete with the railways and was scrapped in 1873. This replica was built to celebrate the Centenary of Coatbridge Burgh in 1985, and was on display at the Glasgow Garden Festival in 1988.
