River Clyde Photography

by Gerrard Ward, who tells us:-

I have no special knowledge of shipping matters,there are other sites which will give you the low down on all the technical stuff.

Caledonia at Rothesay Dock,in the background is the QE2 which has just been launched,the folk on Caledonia must have had a splendid view
