Seafront-(Tuck)085.jpg
Seafront view694 viewsA Tuck & Sons Oilette postcard of Helensburgh seafront, circa 1907. It was painted by Henry Wimbush, who was most active in painting between 1881 and 1908 when he lived at various addresses in London. Like many of his contemporaries in the Tuck's postcards stable, he toured Britain for inspiration and his coverage was far more comprehensive than many of the other Tuck illustrators — including a number of Clyde scenes. His watercolours were published by Tuck between 1904 and 1908, the majority in the Oilette series.

Glenoran House2027 viewsGlenoran House in Rhu, up the hill above the Ardencaple Hotel. It is thought to have been designed and built in 1869 by John Honeyman for Charles Kidston, a member of the well known Kidston family, and was demolished a century later to make way for a housing development — which has never happened. Image supplied by Trish Fleming.

Shandon Hydropathic Hotel904 viewsOriginally West Shandon, this magnificent building was the home of Robert Napier, the greatest figure in Clyde shipbuilding and marine engineering in the mid-19th century. During World War One the Hydro became a hospital, and in World War Two it was used by the army. In 1951 it became a hotel again, but in 1957 it was closed and demolished.
Pier_crossing.jpg
Seafront crossing757 viewsThe junction of West Clyde Street and Colquhoun Street, Helensburgh, as it used to be, with a cobbled walkway across the road to the pier. On the corner, where there is now a three-storey shop and office block, is Robert Brown's 'Cyclist's Rest Pierhead Vaults' public house. Image circa 1907.
