This image shows the shipyard of Archibald McMillan & Son at Dumbarton.

The ship in the middle of the image is the Kana, built for the Moss Hutchison Line in 1929 to transport cargo.

The records of Archibald McMillan & Son are held by Glasgow City Archives. The company was established in 1834 by Archibald McMillan and his son, John, and stopped building ships in 1930. During this time they built nearly 560 vessels.

This image is taken from Bill Lind's collection of photographs and McMillan & Son were a company that he was interested in. An article about the company appeared in the 1976 journal of Scottish Industrial History.
