ONE of the highlights of the Bicentenary celebrations in Helensburgh is the Henry Bell and the Comet Exhibition, lovingly compiled in 2002 by Bell enthusiast Doris A.Gentles, BA, and revived and augmented for this occasion.

It is in the exhibition area upstairs at Helensburgh Library in West King Street until the end of October, and also on display are a number of relevant works of art lent by the local Anderson Trust Collection.

It is a painting by artist, writer and railway enthusiast extraordinary C.Hamilton Ellis, and it shows a train bound for Helensburgh at a point just to the west of Cardross.

Exhibition tribute to Gregor Ian Smith

APRIL 18 2007 was the centenary of the birth of well known local artist Gregor Ian Smith, who died in 1985, and to mark the occasion Helensburgh Heritage Trust put together a display of his works, many of which had not been seen in public before.

I first met Gregor Ian when I was a child and when he and his wife Kathleen and their five children — Graham, Charles, Campbell, Kirsteen and Duncan — lived in West Argyle Street.
