PERHAPS the most unusual Clydebuilt ‘steam vessel’, The Yellow Kettle was part of Inverclyde’s visitor attraction at the Glasgow Garden Festival in 1988.
A nod to the Greenock-born inventor James Watt, renowned for his steam engine innovations, the kettle was built at Adams Yard, Gourock.
After the event, it was brought back to Inverclyde and became part of the tourist information facility at Gourock Pierhead.
The pierhead site was later cleared for redevelopment and the kettle was scrapped.
