At Gas Board Jetty, Southend-on-Sea, 1981.

H.R. Mitchell & Son were a small coaster owner based in Woolwich, South London. The company failed soon after this photo was taken and the ships were laid up in Tilbury Dock.

Thanks for the info Ed. Mitchell's had some lovely old coasters which were very familair on the Thames in the late 70s and early 80s. It's a shame that they didn't last long.

In 1973, I was a sale & purchase broker and I negotiated the purchase of the Dutch "SECUNDA" owned by Jan Visser & W. Noorda for H.R. Mitchell & Sons. One of the conditions of sale was that she was delivered by seller to Woolwich and final payment would be made by myself in Delfzijl to Wijnne & Barends upon acceptance. Fortunately/Unfortunately, the ship had windlass trouble in Gravesend Reach and I had to spend three days in Groningen awaiting the repairs to be confirmed. She then became the "SUSAN MITCHELL" and was a successful ship for Mitchells, before they ceased trading and she went to the Caribbean and eventually sank.
