Maid of Ashton approaches Kilcreggan Pier, Firth of Clyde, early morning, August 1958
My father and I were making a rail tour of Scotland and stopped off at Kilcreggan so we could see Clyde steamers. This was the start of one day's travels, Dunoon in background.

The Maid of Ashton is now moored on the London Embankment and used as a floating restaurant. In 1958 she was still quite new. She looks very different now.
