Alistair Deayton takes us on another tour of Clyde pleasure
steamers, looking at the ships of Williamson Buchanan and Turbine
Steamers Ltd, two of the major independent players on the Clyde.
The Williamson-Buchanan steamers served the routes 'doon the
watter' from the centre of Glasgow to the Clyde Coast resorts,
whilst the ships of Turbine Steamers covered long-distance day
excursions to Inveraray and Campbeltown. The book also includes the
steamers of the Lochgoil Company and the two magnificent paddle
steamers called the Lord of the Isles. From Arran to Rothesay and
all ports in between, we're taken on a nostalgic trip back to the
days when steam was King on the Clyde and when you could travel
from Arran to Glasgow in less than two hours. A special chapter is
given to the development of the White Funnel turbines, which saw
the world's first steam-turbine-powered passenger ship, King
Edward, sail on the Clyde.
