Are those boats not docked at the mills on the Kelvin's Banks, quite a bit upstream from Yorkhill Quay

OK, having had another look I'll give you that one.

It can be quite deceptive without some of the reference points I'm used to seeing in that area.

There weren't any docks at the mills. The boats are at Yorkhill Quay.
The mouth of the Kelvin at the west bank had a shipyard and dry dock, the east bank had a shipyard too, the cranes are Harland and Wolff's yard, east of Govan

This is Yorkhill Quay looking towards Yorkhill Hospital and the Uni.

Hendersons yard, with the dry dock at top right, between the ferry and the slipways is the mouth of the Kelvin.

Looking down the Kelvin, Inglis Yard was on the left, Hendersons on the right.
