Photographer's Note

When I was a lad a p.s.v. was a 'bus. Well to be sure, then I only knew them as 'buses. Only later did I know them to be public service vehicles. Perhaps it was the modern predilection for three letter acronyms that elevated them from mere 'buses.

These days, or at least if your outlook is maritime, you are more likely to think of platform service vessels.

Aberdeen harbour seems to abound in them, for most of the vessels in this picture are they. The North Sea is punctured like a pomander with oil wells and gas pipes, all serviced from the surface by a rig or platform, which in turn are nannied by all these P.S.V.s

Where did all the fishing boats go ?

WS show the main two in close up as they entered the harbour.

John, stitched from two...
