On board the "Gondolier"

A photograph of the crew and baggage carriers aboard the Paddle Steamer (PS) Gondolier.

The PS Gondolier was a long lived steamer which first plied the route along the Caledonian Canal between Inverness and Banavie in 1866.

Having been active for 73 years, her service finally ended in 1939, when she was taken over by the Admiralty and, after her engines and fittings removed, was sunk in Scapa Flow as a blockage to German shipping.
