More from the old album
The first photo was labeled “fishing smack”. Probably hard work working on “SM62”, but how enjoyable it must have been to watch … last seen beyond living memory?
Particular thanks to Robin Jones for the very interesting 6-part local paddle steamer history on this website. However, I can’t decide on the name of the paddle steamer of the second photo, or say with certainty the pier landing stage from which it is seen departing.
