Yes you are right. Originaly from Edinburgh and now in Helensburgh, .. memories flood back. Often down at Craigendoran with my wee dogs and the derelection of what what was once a thriving scene (Steamers and Steam Trains)is so sad. Can still "see" steamers betweeen the rows of decayed piles. All the best. Henry

Indeed did the same myself in the early 50s on alternate holidays to either Dunoon or Rothesay sailing from Bridge Wharf on QUEEN MARY II past the then booming Clyde shipyards.
All gone now in favour of shopping centres and luxury flats.Even QM II is a restaurant/pub far from her home!Thank goodness for WAVERLEY.

Of course you are right, wee mistake, but I still sailed on her with my dear old Dad from Craigendoran in 1947. Co incidentally I sailed on the "Lucy Ashton" in 1946 and the "Queen Mary II" at that time still in battleship grey after her return from War service. I was ten then and lived in Edinburgh and the greatest day outfor any boy with his Dad at the time in the East was to go for a day "Doon the Water" wi Dad on the Clyde Steamers. Thanks. Henry

MUST take you to task over her builders!
Built by A&J Inglis at Pointhouse and launched 2 October 1946 for the then LNER Company.
