Newark Pub ex RIL ELSIE

Newark Pub ex RIL ELSIE

Postby northeast » Fri Feb 07, 2020 7:35 am

The Newark Pub Barge was docked yesterday at Dean's yard on the River Hull, for hul inspection after many years upriver. Sorry was not able to get down for photos.
Full history here, 97 years old this year (the barge, not Dennis)

That's a splendid picture of Ril Elsie at Hull and I'd like to claim that it was mine, but someone else deserves the credit this time George.

That's odd, Dennis, it was one of a pair, the other taken on same day from the silo front so showing more of the grain ship.
This was the other view

Will have to search back to see if I can find its origins. Not many people taking such good quality photos back in those days!

Another excellent picture George but, sadly, not mine.

OK will alter the credit to 'Not Dennis Maccoy' :D
If anyone else claims it, let me know!
