SS Shieldhall
SS Shieldhall
Designed to carry treated sewage sludge from Glasgow to be dumped in the Clyde estuary, she was nevertheless used for passenger charters on the Clyde during the summer season. This was a long-standing tradition on these vessels, and Shieldhall had accommodation for 80 passengers. It is a role that she is still carrying out in Solent waters.
The ship was repainted in 2012 in White Star Line colours, replacing the original grey (see Link as part of the Titanic centenary celebrations. The funnel colour is similar to that carried in Glasgow ownership, as many shipping lines used a buff colour.
