T.G.Irving pics

These photos were mainly taken in the 1960's. However the Carricklee pre dates that by a bit.
The photos of the Rosedene and Ashdene were taken at R.B.Harrison's repair yard at Bill Quay Gateshead.
The one of the Ferndene was taken in Kirkwall with possibly one of Dennison's in the background.
