A further touch of nostalgia for the year that's awa'........and for the long gone past.
V1: A shot taken from a skylight in our home in Old Kilpatrick of one of the Clyde steamers heading upriver to the Broomielaw. That's the Forth and Clyde Canal in the foreground, it was still an active waterway back then.
V2: The same steamer - anyone know which one? My own guess is the King Edward.
V3: A blue funnel (Alfred Holt) ship being manoeuvred into King George V dock, just look how busy the dock is, long time since Glasgow saw anything like that!

Many thanks for your response to My First Car, very much appreciated.

The end of a year is a rime when I too find myself looking back, Jim.
Three wonderful nostalgic images from days gone by and such a pleasure for me and I'm sure many others to see.
Happy New Year to you and your family.......hope it's a good un.

What a wonderfully nostalgic set Jim. My mum used to take me for walks along various stretches of the canal when I was a toddler - to see the swans.
A Very Happy New Year to you and Mary, and your poor wee cat WinkGrin. Moira
