A previous BALTIC TRADER

Postby teesships » Wed May 23, 2012 6:51 pm

The posting of the current BALTIC TRADER on the Tyne page reminded me of one of my favourite photographs taken fully 45 years ago now (oh, dear!!!).

The BALTIC TRADER thrashes away from Middlesbrough Wharf (former Tyne-Tees/Dent's Wharves) on 6 June 1967 - it was a lovely sunny day.

50 YEARS AGO!

Been away for a few days so unable to post on the actual TODAY anniversary!

Scans from the two negatives I still retain taken 6 June 1967 (including a fresh scan of one above):

Looking at these again I now note the stern view is from a slightly different angle to the one previously shown!
