The Boy who Lived in the Mansion

The Boy who Lived in the Mansion

This feature is about one man’s life on the Clyde and the special connection he had with a Georgian Mansion that used to be in the middle of the Garvel Island and the James Watt Docks.

Excellent wee video. I think the Garvel was the best wee Drydock I worked in. A red boy lol. Used the tunnel many a time kept ye fit. Thanks for the wee tour and information.

Knew Billy years ago when I lived in the east end (John Street). Always a pleasure talking to him. When you worked in shipyards all your working life, you deserve a break. Enjoy retirement.
