Glasgow and Aberdeen - Changed Maritime Fortunes
23 June 2022  | 

Seawards The Great Ships (1960) records the great days of Clyde ship building, a contrast to the present day when Clyde ship builders are finding it difficult to build two small passenger ferries for Caledonian Macbrayne.
The Silver City (1957) records Aberdeen harbour when it was filled with ships and cargoes from around the world, a contrast to the present day when oil rig supply boats and tenders fill the berths.
