A few from the sixties

Post by Dennis Maccoy » Sat Oct 29, 2011 4:24 pm

Some scans of 35mm slides taken during the sixties. At that time I used Agfacolor, which has a distinct blue cast that requires some juggling with the scanner software and/or Photoshop to correct.

Thanks for these Dennis, oodles of nostalgia there, CULLERCOATS was my favourite, lots of 'character' about her.

Hi Dennis,

That's a rare one from Blyth with a nice shot of the Ice House in the background. She has Colpits launch next to her so I guess they were doing some work on her before se officially joined the Blyth Fleet.

Was quite normal to see a small collier at that berth but I cannot remember it being regularly used by the Tugs.
