Another intriguing image has come my way, courtesy of David Bradshaw, who has been going through old family albums.
David believes that the above image was taken at Helensburgh and I'm inclined to agree, as we can see a Clyde steamer at the pier to the left and the distant landscape opposite looks about right. It's obviously been regatta day, as the Firth is littered with the little livery boats beloved by generations of Scots Doon the Watter, many turned out by the Bute Fyfes.
As to the date and the design of the two interesting little yachts in the foreground I've got some ideas but don't want to spoil the fun.
To date we've had a 100% success rate in finding the mystery yachts (see She's a Herreshoff and She's a Fife ) so let's see how it goes this time.
