Comments:
I think that might be the St.Ninian which would make the picture in the Fifties. The car is possibly an Austin with a folding "Dickie" seat in the back of the car,it folded down like a pram hood.

Its not the St Ninian but the last steam ship St Clair(II) built in 1937 for the North Co. In 1960 she changed her name briefly to St Clair(III) and then to St Magnus(IV) after the St Magnus (III) was scrapped.
