circa 1911: The inner bottom and midship framing of the Cunard liner 'Aquitania' during construction at John Brown and Company's Clydebank Yard. 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%.
