I'm in a port city somewhere in the English-speaking world.
This place is full of remarkable places, and in my walkabout today I saw two things that I didn't know anything about, and for which there was basically no signage. I suppose if you're a local, these things are obvious--but they're not obvious to me!
This Challenge is another in our series of "What's the story?"
As you remember, each "What's the Story?" Challenge will be an open-ended question (or two) that asks you, the SearchResearcher, to figure out what's going on in the image. I figure that you'll be able to search out the place and name of the things--but can you also dig into the remarkable stories that are associated with these places?
1. I saw this remarkable beast of a device that's labelled as "Clydeport" just across the river from where I'm staying. I can figure out what it is, but I know nothing of its genesis or why it's there? Can you search out the story? (Here I've pasted a small image so the SRS page will load quickly. But here's a LINK if you'd like to download the whole image.)
|What / Where / Why is this beast?|
2. About 1/2 mile away from this thing is a slightly mysterious building. It has a nice Italian restaurant on the bottom floor, but this building was clearly NOT designed to be an Italian restaurant. This kind of mismatch makes me curious. What is this building? And what was it originally designed to do? LINK to the full image.

As always, use your best SRS skills--and when you figure out the answers (including the backstories), let us know what you found and HOW you found it. Leave your pearls of wisdom in the comment!
Good luck! (I've figured out the first one but haven't yet tackled the second. This might be tough to find.) .
