More about this scene


Caption for Helensburgh, Colquhoun Square 1901: Sir James Colquhoun of Luss developed Helensburgh in the late 18th century as a residential district for those who could afford not to have to live any nearer to Glasgow than was absolutely necessary. Helensburgh's leading hotels were the Queen's and the Imperial. During the main season, rooms cost from 3s 6d a day and dinner was 4s, which was slightly less than what the top Glasgow hotels were charging.
