Friday photo - Waverley

11:29 AM

The PS Waverley is one of the most famous of the Clyde paddle steamers and is now the last sea-going paddle steamer in the world. I'm posting images of it today because the Waverley's Clyde sailings start again today, you can find out more about the timetable here.

In the Dan McDonald collection we only have images of the original Waverley, built in 1899 by A and J Inglis of Pointhouse and sunk at Dunkirk in 1940.


Image taken in Bowling 9 October 1921, the Waverley sits between the Columba and the Iona.

This ship was built for the North British Railway Company and was used on longer distance cruises from Craigendoran.


Image has no date.

Information about the PS Waverley 1946 can be found here, here and here.
