Police officers were out in force on Jamaica Street Bridge.
A large-scale check for stolen cars was under way by the newly formed support unit of the City of Glasgow Police.
The 37-strong support unit, which was based at Springburn, was set up as a mini task force for the city.
The operation in the city was one of the most concentrated checks ever made in Glasgow.
In the background is the Royal Stuart Hotel.
The building was later halls of residence for students at Strathclyde University.
It is now the Euro Hostel and is popular with backpackers from around the world.
