Description
Men stand on the deck of a paddle steamer. Most are wearing coats and bunnets, some are wearing bowlers or homburgs. The steamer bridge is open and is set behind the funnel forcing the crew member at the wheel to look round it. Engine telegraphs can be seen by the wheel and on the wings.

Subject notes
The steamer, which is producing a lot of smoke, was probably coal-fired. Works excursions involving the hire of a steamer were popular. Many large inland lochs such as Lomond, Tay, Awe and Katrine had excursion steamers with rail connections from the piers.
