Installing Turbines Featured Clydebank Print

Installing Turbines

circa 1911: Huge turbine engines being hoisted into position for fitting to the Cunard luxury liner Aquitania during her construction at a Clydebank shipyard owned by John Brown and Company. The Aquitania took three years to build and was launched in 1914 weighing 45,647 gross tons. The last of the Atlantic four-stackers, she went on to become the longest-serving ship this century, retiring after 35 years of service which included war duty as an armed merchant cruiser, a troopship and a hospital. Shipyards dominated Clydebank and led to rapid industrial growth until demand faltered and the area's economy slumped in 1931 with unemployment levels reaching 65%.

After The Launch

27th September 1938: The Cunard White Star liner Queen Elizabeth approaching the fitting out basin after being launched at the John Brown shipyard in Clydebank, Glasgow. Workmen used 10, 000, 000 rivets during the construction of the Queen Elizabeth and she was the largest liner ever built, weighing 83, 673 tons and measuring 1, 031 feet long. The liner was launched in 1938 and began war service as a transport ship, carrying 15, 000 troops at a time for six years before being repainted in Cunard livery in 1946. She sailed to New York harbour every week until transatlantic cruises became less popular and she retired in 1968, plans to convert the ship to a floating university were scrapped when she caught fire in a Hong Kong harbour during refitting.

HMS Pegasus alongside HMS Marlborough recovering seaplane

HMS Pegasus alongside HMS Marlborough recovering her seaplane (detailed on this card as "Her small child"!). HMS Marlborough was an Iron Duke-class battleship of the British Royal Navy, named in honour of John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough. Built at Devonport Royal Dockyard between January 1912 and June 1914 and entered service just prior to First World War. Assigned to the Mediterranean Fleet after the war, Marlborough took part in the Allied intervention in the Russian Civil War (in the Black Sea 191920). She was also involved in the Greco-Turkish War. HMS Pegasus was an aircraft carrier/seaplane carrier bought by the Royal Navy in 1917 during the First World War. She was laid down in 1914 by John Brown & Company of Clydebank, Scotland as SS Stockholm for the Great Eastern Railway Company, but construction was suspended by the start of the war. She spent most of 1919 and 1920 supporting British intervention against the Bolsheviks in North Russia and the Black Sea. The ship remained with the Mediterranean Fleet until 1924. Date: 1923
