The Beardmore Sculpture by Lairich Rig
The Beardmore Sculpture

For an earlier photo, see NS4871 : Battleship sculpture; see also NS4871 : Beardmore Sculpture, where it is shown illuminated. This galvanized sculpture is by the local artist Tom McKendrick, and represents the battleship HMS Ramillies. The original vessel was built locally, at the Naval Construction Works, the Dalmuir shipyard of William Beardmore and Co., during the First World War. The shipyard was located in the area where the NS4870 : Golden Jubilee Hospital now stands. The NS4871 : Memorial for employees of the Beardmore works was later moved to a location beside a path just behind this sculpture; it had earlier been beside a NS4870 : Riverside walkway.
