Synopsis

For centuries the Clyde has been synonymous with ships but in the last thirty years there has been a decline in the number of vessels using the lower reaches of the river. The shipyards that made the river famous are all but gone and the plethora of paddlers that plied their trade between the coastal towns have been replace by a few ferries. Clyde Shipping - The Twilight Years is a trip down memory lane for those who remember when the Clyde was the third most important river in Britain and its ports some of the busiest. That heyday has gone and all that we have to remind us of the greatness of the Clyde are images such as the ones contained within this book. No longer are the world's largest ocean liners built here and only a few large ships now make the journey up the river. Once busy ports like Greenock and Port Glasgow lie silent for much of the time and all that remains are photographs and the memories of those who worked on this once busy river.
