Old Photograph Glasgow Corporation Waterworks Loch Katrine Scotland

Old photograph of Glasgow Corporation Waterworks by Loch Katrine, Trossachs, Scotland. The growth of Glasgow and the subsequent need for unpolluted water for human consumption and for a guaranteed source for industrial needs saw the decision to build an aqueduct to provide water to the city. Loch Katrine was chosen to be the source of the supply. An intake was constructed by 1855 at Royal Cottage allowing a controlled water supply to flow from Loch Katrine into the aqueduct system. The system was inaugurated by Queen Victoria on 14th October 1859. By 1883 an additional supply from Loch Katrine was needed due to the increased consumption of water by the city. An additional aqueduct was constructed resulting in the need for a second intake which was completed in 1885. The new aqueduct 23.5 miles in length was officially opened on 21st June 1901.
