Maritime Museum Proposal from 1989

A must-read article from The Glasgow Herald, 2nd November 1989 (the year after the docks were decommissioned), reporting on a bid to transform Govan Graving Docks into a maritime museum.

Sheds an interesting light on the current situation of the site and concerns over its deterioration – “in direct contravention of statutes concerning the maintenance of A-listed sites”.
