Men wore tweed jackets, Oilskins, Kapok (whatever that is) Lifejackets and Sowesters.
I love the detail of old photos...spot the head launcher with the hammer, one dangerous looking chap with a pistol (varey pistol?) and another rather lucky chap with a couple of flags! Somehow these guys look rather heroic and stoical...compare this to our motley crew who turned up to the shout on Saturday wearing board-shorts and flip-flops!
I wonder, would anyone care to date this photo or name the boat? Indeed, does anyone out there know the name of any of the crew?
Interestingly, the building here still forms part of our building and the cobble slipway still exists underneath ours...built to last!
