Glasgow Corporation Tramways was renamed Glasgow Corporation Transport in 1929. Even before the change of name to Glasgow Corporation Transport, Glasgow Corporation ran buses and took over the underground. The the large green 1/2d tokens have similar die types to the vulcanised fibre 2 Stage Tramway tokens.
