The Clyde Passenger Steamer
Its Rise and Progress during the nineteenth Century from the 'Comet' of 1812 to the 'King Edward' of 1901 By Captain James Williamson (1904)


A DESIRE has been widely expressed for some permanent record of the rise and progress of the passenger steamer on the Clyde. I have ventured to undertake the task on the strength of an intimate and continuous association with the enterprise from my earliest years, and of an active share in it since 1868. For records and data, I gratefully acknowledge my indebtedness to the builders and engineers of the steamers, and to other gentlemen who have had a personal connection with the traffic. In every case pains have been taken to obtain authentic information.

Greenock, July, 1904.
