Gabbarts and iron-ship yard, Dumbarton
This picture shows iron-framed ships under construction in Archibald McMillan and Son's yard. This firm built some of the largest sailing ships on the Clyde. During 1855 two ships, the 'Ardberg', 925 tons, and the 'Jane Jack Mitchell', 980 tons, were launched from this yard and may be the ships shown here under construction. Scottish sailing barges, 'gabbarts', were also built here.
