Ships and Harbours
No: 12647   Contributor: Paul Strathdee   Year: 1966   Manufacturer: Fairfield, Govan, United Kingdom   Country: United Kingdom

Another well known Clyde steamer was JEANIE DEANS built by the Fairfield yard in Glasgow in 1931.
Post war she was extensively rebuilt to test the design for the LNER's new paddler which became WAVERLEY.
JEANIE DEANS ran on the Clyde until 1964 when she was withdrawn from service and was renamed QUEEN OF THE SOUTH starting a service on the Thames.
Sadly mechanical problems dogged her and she eventually had to be withdrawn and went to Belgian breakers in 1967.
This photo taken by Mike Campbell and passed on to me was take towards the end of her days on the Clyde at Rothesay.
