Matthews' Quay
This high shot affords north-west views featuring the edge of Point Law and Provost Mathews' Quay.

The left of the image contains the ferry terminal structure. To the right of this building, three trawlers sit moored in the foreground.

These vessels are quite possibly Fife-Ness (A377), the Blossom (A9), and Star of the North (A633). All three of these vessels were registered in the area between 1903 and 1915.

A large merchant ship can also be seen along Provost Mathews' Quay. This looks like the steamship St. Sunniva, built in 1887 by Hall Russell for the North of Scotland & Orkney & Shetland Steam Navigation Company Ltd. As their name suggests, the company operated services to the Northern Isles. Beyond Matthews' Quay, Victoria Dock is visible.

The commercial traffic taking up the river and bustling townscape in the distance highlights the merchant trade for which Aberdeen was famed.
