Shandon Bus Crash475 viewsA Garelochhead Coach Service double decker bus lies on the beach at Shandon after an accident on the old lochside road in November 1965. Andrew Shirley from Rhu, who is researching the Garelochhead bus companies, believes this bus is MXX 177, one of the former London Transport RT class operated by the firm. It was repaired and put back into service.
Captayannis0612.jpg
The Sugar Ship544 viewsAn aerial view of the 8,325 ton Greek cargo ship Captayannis lying on a sandbank near to Ardmore Point not long after she was sunk. 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.
Cardross_Station3041.jpg
Cardross Station398 viewsA picture of a mystery celebration at Cardross Station. The bunting and Union Jacks, the waiting horse drawn carriages — and one early car — and the finery of the people in suggests a very special occasion, perhaps the opening of part of the station, or troops returning from the First World War, or even a royal visit? However it is believed to be the arrival of guests attending a wedding. The station was opened on January 15 1858, the line was doubled in 1883, and the bridge was built the following year.
