Film of the old St Clair, berthed and then departing from Victoria Pier. The old practice of people standing on the pier to wave goodbye is a central aspect of this, as was the use of the external gangplank to get on and off the vessel. The film also depicts a large old building that used to be situated on the pier but was demolished c.1970s.

Donated by the Miller family.
