circa 1911: Huge turbine engines being hoisted into position for fitting to the Cunard luxury liner 'Aquitania' during her construction at a Clydebank shipyard owned by John Brown and Company. The Aquitania took three years to build and was launched in 1914 weighing 45,647 gross tons. The last of the Atlantic four-stackers, she went on to become the longest-serving ship this century, retiring after 35 years of service which included war duty as an armed merchant cruiser, a troopship and a hospital. Shipyards dominated Clydebank and led to rapid industrial growth until demand faltered and the area's economy slumped in 1931 with unemployment levels reaching 65%.
