I'm wondering if this is the DISCOVERY and what was happening here.

"Discovery" being towed downstream with top hamper removed for negotiation of low bridges. While in static use underwent a number of refits. Period 1940s/50s ? Photo possibly taken from Blackfriars Bridge.

She used to be moored on the Embankment, London. Remember visiting her several times as a youngster. She was moved back to her birthplace, Dundee, sometime in the '70s - London's loss was Dundee's gain.

1979 DISCOVERY was moved from the Embankment to St Katharines Dock. March 1986 she was shipped aboard the HAPPY MARINER for the voyage to Dundee.
