On the banks of River Clyde, in the town of Clydebank, in West Dunbartonshire, Scotland, a towering cantilever crane rises. A hundred years ago, this area was a major shipbuilding hub and the crane was at the heart of its operation. The 150-foot-tall Titan Clydebank lifted heavy equipment such as engines and boilers, during the fitting-out of battleships and ocean liners at the John Brown & Company shipyard. The crane assisted in the building of some of the largest ships of the 20th century, including the Queen Mary, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Elizabeth 2, as well as numerous battleships and destroyers. The shipyard no longer exists, but the crane is still there. It has been transformed into a popular tourist attraction and beautifully illuminated at night. On a clear evening one can see the mighty cantilever crane from miles away.
