This exhibition presents the extraordinary work of amateur photographer Robert Paterson who captured the bygone era of the Clyde river.

Through the window of his Dunoon home, Robert Paterson photographed the pleasure, innovation, and tragedy that took place on these waters. Visitors to the show are invited to open a window onto the world of Clydebuilt ships.

Window on the Clyde tells the story of the Clyde during the period of the late 1800s to the end of the Second World War. Three generations of the Paterson family contributed to the Paterson Photography Collection, a 60,000-strong collection of photographs, slides and negatives. Along with photographs, objects are displayed to tell the story of the River Clyde through the life and times of the Paterson family.
