Finnieston Crane
Finnieston Crane
This was once the largest crane in Europe. It was built in Carlisle and assembled here in 1932. Officially it is known as the Stobcross crane. It is a hammer-head shaped crane which is 60m (200ft) tall. It was built to lift massive boilers and engines into new ships. It fell into disuse in the 1990s but has been retained as a symbol of the city's engineering heritage. It is also a category 'A' listed structure.
