Joe, as you've actually posted, Over Yonder Banks was written by the recently deceased Graeme Miles, not Archie Fisher. It will presumably be about shipbuilding on the River TEES, the area where Graeme lived for many years.
Ray Fisher (one of Archie Fisher's sisters) lived in the area of the River TYNE, another great shipbuilding area in N East England, after she married.
And yes, the Fairfield Crane is on the River Clyde, Glasgow.
