Confetti mortars were let off as three hearty cheers sent Waverley on her way

The paddler steams away for Greenock, Helensburgh and Arrochar

Coming into Greenock Custom House Quay

Steaming up Long Long

Leaving Greenock for Glasgow

Steaming upriver

Viewed from the south bank of the Clyde ...

... the Waverley is canted (turned round) ...

... between her day and evening cruises ...

... using a very long rope to pull round her bow ...

... until she was back alongside Anderston Quay facing downstream again.
