DVD The Golden Jubilee of the Paddle Steamer Waverley 1947 to 1997

An absolutely rare, unique and comprehensive fascinating visual history of the first 50 years of this world famous clyde pleasure paddle steamer. The P.S. Waverley II, named after Sir Walter Scott’s first novel is the last sea going passenger steamer in the world. Starting with the laying of the keel in 1945 at A&J Inglis Shipyard we follow her construction and fitting out before joining her on her maiden sail in July 1947 to Arrochar in her original LNER colours. Following her as she gracefully sweeps away from the Isle of Arran in July 1947. Enjoy and reminisce amongst the beautiful rare colour scenes as she steams gracefully in and around the islands and ports of the river clyde where we call at Dunoon, Craigendorran, Helensburgh, Arran, Millport and Rothesay and many more during the 1950s and 1960s. We follow her history over the next fifty years as she changes owners, colours and routes several times before finally being acquired by the Paddle Steamer Preservation Society from her previous owners CalMac.
