    This collection of absolutely stunning images, all taken by Ally,

shows EEBORG in the River Clyde, Scotland, on 6th May 2020.

   Ally advises that she was carrying a cargo of Grain from Ontario,

Canada, for discharge at Riverside Quay, Shieldhall, Glasgow, and

in the Clyde her pilot tug was AYTON CROSS and the stern tug


    The first images show EEBORG passing the Erskine Road

Bridge around 1100 hours, then passing Dalmuir then passing

the massive Clydebank "Titan" crane and the last images show

her arriving about 1200 hours at Shieldhall, berthing with her

head east.

 The final image, artistically and beautifully presented,

shows the enormous head of the giant cantilever crane

beside Diesel Wharf, Whiteinch, Glasgow on the north

bank of the Clyde, this crane being a relic of the long

gone Barclay Curle Shipyard.
