The former site of Denny's shipyard
The former site of Denny's shipyard
The foreground area of the shore was part of Denny's shipyard (the Leven Shipyard and Engine Works, operated by William Denny and Brothers). This northern part of the Leven Shipyard had earlier been part of the Victoria Yard (of Denny and Rankin), but the Leven Shipyard would be extended further to the south to include the Castlegreen area, so that it would reach as far as to the foot of Dumbarton Rock; compare NS3974 : The former site of Denny's shipyard.

In the background, Sandpoint (NS3974 : The shoreline at Sandpoint) is on the left, with a light blue building on it. The NS3975 : Remains of Ballantine's Distillery are prominent above the centre of the photo, with NS3975 : The high flats at West Bridgend to their left. To the right of the distillery's brick tower are the spire of NS3975 : Riverside Parish Church and the top of the NS3975 : Old Burgh Hall, Church Street, Dumbarton.
