world pictures The Western United States: Oahu 2: Honolulu

A minute's walk brings us to the Falls of Clyde, an iron-hulled four-master built in Glasgow in 1878. It went to work in India, then got demoted to tramp service. William Matson bought the ship in 1899 and over the next eight years The Falls made 60 round-trip voyages to California--seventeen days each way, back when tourists had time. In 1907 Matson sold the ship, and the Clyde was converted to a tanker run by Associated Oil ("Tidewater" was the brand). Somehow, the vessel was cleaned up enough to carry molasses on the journey back to the West Coast. The steel masts came in the 1970s. In 2016 the ship was permanently tied up in the harbor.
