Friday photo - Cranes

I have limited resources today so cannot upload any new photos for the Friday photo post. Instead I thought I would focus on the picture used in the header for the blog.
This is a picture of several cranes outside (I think) what is now BAE System in Govan. The yard itself was founded in the 1860s by Randolph, Elder & Co and operated as Fairfield Shipbuilding and Engineering Co. Ltd from 1885-1965.

There is a lot of information online about the larger cantilever cranes that operated on the river Clyde (such as the Titan) but not much about these smaller models. Although all cranes were used during construction to fit out the ships.
