Passing the Cloch

Coloured cartoon from the Glasgow Looking Glass 6 August 1825, the fifth in the series "Shipping News" shows the Greenock-Liverpool steamboat passing a Cloch Lighthouse opposite Dunoon on the Firth of Clyde. Under the title "Passing the Cloch: Pleasant breeze" it shows passengers buffeted by strong winds which have blown off the hat belonging to one passenger. Others are looking queasy, and several are being violently sea sick.
