Friday photo - Vehicular Ferry No. 2

9:30 AM

Today's photo is the first of a new batch of 'Us' and 'Vs' and is the Vehicular Ferry No. 2.

I have no idea who the builder is or the date so any suggestions would be welcome.

Vehicular Ferry No. 2

There is some information about the vehicular ferries on this site which states that in the 1950’s when vehicular ferries provided the cross-river service on the Clyde their odd appearance is explained:
"by the fact that they were essentially large floating lifts. The vehicle deck could be raised or lowered according to the tidal level at fixed docking points."
