CRSC is selling high-quality enlargements of one of the greatest of all steamer photographs.
This limited edition shows King George V entering Oban Bay in all her glory on 9 July 1971.
The A3-size print (16″ x 12″) is ideal for framing.
This memento of the much loved MacBrayne turbine is available to all-comers — priced £20 (£15 for paid up CRSC members). Click here to buy.
If you have not yet joined CRSC, you can do so here for £10, which would automatically give you the £5 members’ discount on your KGV enlargement.
We have a limited supply, so please order without delay. The print will be despatched post-free in a cardboard tube. Allow two weeks for delivery. The copyright watermarks do not appear on the actual print.
These enlargements were made from a scan of the original negative, to which CRSC has had privileged access. They have the same high-quality finish as last year’s black-and-white enlargements of Duchess of Hamilton at Millport, a handful of which are still available at the same price — click here to buy.
The KGV photo, which formed the centre spread of the 2020 CRSC magazine Clyde Steamers, was taken by A. E. Bennett, a renowned shipping photographer. He hired a rowing boat to position himself at the best vantage point for capturing the ship on her approach to Oban from Fort William for the Wednesday sailing to Iona.
CRSC’s latest Calendar, DVD and photo pack are available here.
