The Clyde, ca. 1816
Greenock, Glasgow, and other ports along Scotland's River Clyde established trade links with Newfoundland and Labrador in the early 18th century. One hundred years later, Clyde merchants and other commercial workers began migrating to Newfoundland's east coast to take advantage of new opportunities in trade and commerce created by the colony's growing resident fishery.
