Old Finnieston Crane - Glasgow, Scotland


To raise awareness on the 31st August for International Overdose Awareness Day (https://www.overdoseday.com/) our partner Nightlight Events choosed eight Studio Due City Color Led to light Finnieston Crane purple.

The Finnieston Crane (also known as the Stobcross Crane) is an iconic giant cantilever crane in the centre of Glasgow (Scotland) that has been in situ since 1848. It is no longer operational, but represents a symbol of the city’s engineering heritage and proud history of shipbuilding, and is the largest of the 4 cantilever cranes which remain along the River Clyde.

The crane was used for loading cargo, in particular steam locomotives, onto ships to be exported around the world.The crane is situated in a district that has seen massive development in the last decade with the new BBC building being built across the water and the Hydro Music Venue now right next to the crane.
