Caption for Helensburgh, The Esplanade 1901: Founded in 1776 by Sir James Colquhoun of Luss (who named the town after his wife), Helensburgh has become popular as a holiday resort and as a golfing, fishing and yachting centre. It stands on the Lower Clyde near the entrance to Gare Loch. Henry Bell, who became a Provost of the burgh, designed and built the steamboat 'Comet'; an obelisk to him stands on the Esplanade, and the flywheel from the 'Comet' is preserved in Hermitage Park.
