Garelochhead-w~1.jpg
Historic photo67 viewsAn albumen photo of Garelochhead village, c.1890, taken by George Washington Wilson (February 7 1823-March 9 1893), a pioneering Scottish photographer. In 1849, he began a career as a portrait miniaturist, switching to portrait photography in 1852. He received a contract to photograph the Royal Family, working for Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Later he switched to landscape photography. An albumen print was made by coating thin paper with a layer of egg-white containing salt and sensitised with a silver nitrate solution, then printed using daylight under a negative. The resulting paper had a smooth surface with a fine sheen.Sep 25, 2021

sugar-ship-w.jpg
Sugar ship662 viewsThe 8,325 ton Greek cargo ship Captayannis lying on a sandbank near to Ardmore Point. On the evening of January 27 1974 the area suffered from a terrific storm which blew the vessel from its anchor and caused it to collide with the BP tanker British Light. The anchor chains of the tanker holed the sugar boat, allowing water to pour into her, so she was beached in the shallow waters over the sandbank. Beyond is Helensburgh seafront and, up the hill, the huge metal box covering the Charles Rennie Mackintosh mansion Hill House during extensive repairs. 2020 image by T.Nugent. © Copyright and licensed for reuse under Creative Commons Licence.Mar 05, 2021
