Friday Photo 'Glenclova'

4:52 PM

This week's Friday photo is one of the glass negatives from the Dan McDonald collection, which was digitised earlier this week by one of our volunteers, William Brown. The Dan McDonald collection is permanently held with the Trust and was bought by Bill Lind in 1996. The collection contains over 6,500 images of ships, vessels and places along the Clyde and west coast of Scotland (c.1920-1980).   

This particular negative is of 'Glenclova' a steel sailing vessel 4 Mastered Barque in the Tasman sea, a little further afield than the Clyde and west coast of Scotland! This ship was built by Charles Connell & Company, Glasgow in 1893. This isn't one of Dan's own images but one that is part of his larger collection.
