Tales of the Riverman 51 boathiring

One of the privileges that went with being officer of the Glasgow Humane Society was that you were given the right to be a boathirer on the river Clyde. The Officer had his own shed/boathouse. During the 19th Century there were several Boathiring stations on the river on the south bank opposite Glasgow Green (McWhirters Aquatic Saloon, McGruers, McNeil, Rankins, Wallace, McQueen, and Carroll’s) with the Society officer being the only one on the north bank.
