SS 'Lochbroom'

The SS 'Lochbroom', an iron ship, was built in 1871 by Elders of Govan for the Aberdeen Steam Navigation Co. Ltd. The MacBrayne ferry company bought her in 1931 as the 'City of London' and renamed her. The SS 'Lochbroom' was purchased to replace the SS 'Claymore' on the Glasgow to Lochinver route, carrying passengers and freight for west coast ports. This postcard, showing the ship with Kyleakin in the background, was produced by Duncan Macpherson in 1936, just a year before the SS 'Lochbroom' was sold for scrap in July 1937
