The Clyde – The Making of A River


This is perhaps of more interest to readers as a companion to the Hugh Peebles’ book Warship Building On The Clyde. It covers the transformation of the Clyde itself from its shallow shoal filled natural state to a waterway capable of taking mighty ships such as the battleship HMS Vanguard and the two liners Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth all of which were built by John Brown and Co. The thoroughly researched text is complimented by an interesting selection of B/W photos including one of Vanguard on trials at the Tail of the Bank
