Use photographs of locations on the Campbell family’s route from Ireland to Glasgow to develop geographical awareness in students of the Campbell family’s history and empathy for the difficulty of their journey.


Greenock Esplanade looking northwest across the Firth of Clyde toward the Scottish Highlands. On Tuesday, November 1, Alexander and others went ashore to walk five miles to Greenock, where Alexander engaged lodgings. He returned in a boat to get his family and all their baggage to Greenock that night. Greenock was then and still is a busy port on the Firth of Clyde west of Glasgow. Alexander arranged for the family to follow him by boat with their baggage and set out November 3 to walk 23 miles to Glasgow to find a place for them to live.
