A view from the Fifties of the entrance to Poole harbour, taken from the Haven Hotel, and showing the Sandbanks ferry on the Studland side. A nice selection of cars parked there too !

I think Eddy has them right. At that time I always though the Austin Atlantic was a really 'cool' car. They weren't a great success, though, probably because underneath they were pretty much the same as the A40 next door ! I suppose these days I'd plump for the Jag, then... The old Ford Popular was just that in my student days. We used to call them the Hay Model, because that's what they ran on.

Graham,

Well, thereís a blast from my past. I was brought up in Poole in the 40ís and 50ís. And spent many summer days swimming in Studland Bay.

If I remember it correctly, the chain ferry of that era, being double ended, was generally set up with the single coke fired boiler on the seaward side and the steam reciprocating engine on the harbour side.

A Skipper up top, an engineer down below, possibly with a fireman, and one other hand on deck. As a child I well remember standing at the engine room door watching the engine. Every once in a while the engineer would pop across to the seaward side to attend to the boiler. Everything manual of course.

In the 50ís the queue to cross was massive and having a motorcycle combination I knew that there was a special space on board to take the outfit, so much to the annoyance of the queue, I would ride past them all, right down to the ramp and usually be the first to board.

Interestingly, I have a family photo somewhere of the ferry, taken by my father in about 1928, when he and friend were on a motorcycle holiday from London.

I used to take part in the Poole Harbour swim, from the where the ferry crossed the harbour entrance to the lifting bridge on the quay. I was of course fitter in those days! Sadly, traffic and H&S have long since caused this annual event to be abandoned.

Regards,
MWD
