A rare sight

A rare sight, originally uploaded by gms.

"The ferry seen in this photo was launched yesterday in great fanfare.

It's a rare sight and quite sad as well because large ships were built and launched almost weekly in the Clyde shipyards, all within living memory. But the shipyards have long gone, replaced by Tesco supermarket, expensive houses and vast unemployment with it's problems of depression, drugs, alcohol, crime, health and vision. A sad end to a great industry."
