By Easter 1982 paddle steamer Waverley had recommenced her seasonal 'doon-the-watter' excursions. At that time she was the only passenger vessel offering the opportunity to sail on the Clyde above Greenock and her sailings provided (and still do) an excellent means of viewing the ever changing river. Here is the view aft from her starboard paddle box as the vessel cants in the river off Stobcross Quay. At this time the width of the river was restricted by the presence of laid-up tonnage on the south side at Mavisbank and Plantation Quays. The bow of the Greek registered tanker Thetis can be seen on the left ahead of which is the site now occupied by Glasgow Science Centre. In the distance are the Govan Graving Docks and a large vessel is berthed in the former Harland & Wolff fitting out basin.
