Celebrating the Comet - Part One

July 24 2012 marks the two hundred year anniversary of the launch of the prestigious P.S. Comet, the replica of which stands proudly in Port Glasgow town centre.

To highlight this historic event the project team based at 7 ½ John Wood Street will be running a brief history of the Comet's memorable saga in a series of weekly instalments. The first of which will focus on the inception of the comet and how it came to be connected with Port Glasgow.

This post will be launched Monday March 12, and will feature a summary of Henry Bell's vision for steam powered nautical travel. From then on the blog will be updated every Friday with a plotted history of key events in the Comet timeline and its link to Inverclyde.
