If ever a memorial deserved to be more prominently displayed then this is it.

Glasgow is a city that, more than most, owes its heritage to its working people.

The shipbuilders who built some of the greatest vessels in maritime history made Glasgow famous round the world.

So it is entirely fitting that a memorial should be erected to commemorate their legacy.

The rust sculpture "Homage to Shipbuilding" is quirky and imaginative.

It is made of cast iron and consists of steel plates, the same as were used to build the great ships.

The memorial depicts a shipyard riveter. He is wearing a cloth cap and has a dog.

An inscription reads: "Celebrate those shipbuilders who made the Clyde great".

Beside it is a table depicting the tools he would have used when Clyde shipbuilding was in its heyday.

It was put in place in 2005. The designer was Jimmy Cosgrove, formerly of Glasgow School of Art and the sculptor Hector McGarva.

But finding it is not so easy. It should be centrally located so residents and tourists alike can feel justifiably proud of the workers' achievements.

Instead it is tucked away in a corner of Bellahouston park, on a grassy area between the dry ski slope and House for an Art Lover.

It is a striking and eye-catching piece of work and it might be argued that it blends perfectly with its surroundings.

But Bellahouston park is not by any stretch of the imagination central, nor is it by the river where these men plied their trade.

In a city where shipbuilding was king, it seems a bit of a shame that a statue to our working men and women - and the sentiments that go along with it - is tucked away in a city park.

A location by the banks of the Clyde would arguably be more appropriate.

or what about George Square? After all many people would say the Clyde workers did more for Glasgow than Victoria, Albert, Sir Walter Scott and the various other characters whose statues stand there.
