A blast from the past!

I vaguely remember them as still being in operation when my interest started in 1960 (although I could be wrong!!) but I do not recall seeing any of their vessels, if they were still running them by then. Corporation Dock is adjacent to the Transporter Bridge, now the new location of the Tees Harbour Office, based in the former Fire Brigade building.

Very interesting, Ron. Have not checked them all in CLIP but LEEDS SUN was from Henry Scarr at Hessle in 1915, 62.2ft towing barge for Selby Warehousing & Transport Co. Ltd., reg. at Hull 30/09/1915.
By 1930 owned by Peter Spence & Sons Ltd., Manchester but managed from Goole Alum Works.
Reg. at Middlesbrough 1931 and by 1940 owned by Nellist.

SWEEP (135927) assume this one, Dutch built and reg. at Ipswich 1916
REONORA (146929) assumed, reg. Sunderland in 1924, in 1930/40 owned at south Shields, CLIP has no place of build :(

Lovely stuff....in the late 50's,early 60's, I used to fish with a chap called 'Old' Bob, who worked on the one remaining sand barge. Often when I was working visiting ships on No.6 or Ichaboe Buoys he would pass sitting on the stern and holding up a nice plaice or dab from Seal Sands ( as it used to be)...
