Princess May Video Online

The latest video to be added to the PSPS YouTube Channel features the Loch Lomond Paddle Steamer Princess May.

Princess May operated on the loch from 1898 until 1952 and was scrapped following the introduction of Maid of the Loch in 1953. Princess May was built by A & J Inglis and fitted with a 2 cylinder simple diagonal engine. She was just over 165 feet in length with a gross tonnage of 256.

In this remarkable video you can see the islands and villages of Loch Lomond post-war in full colour.
