Just come across this caption = SS Athenia passing Yorkhill Quay 1935, the pump house at the top is about all that is still recognisable today. The Anchor Line's New York steamships Cameronia and Transylvania are visible behind the Athenia. at glasgowpunter.blogspot.com/2017/01/the-sinking-of-tss-athenia-september.html
