Buggins
What a great photograph, the sky, the crane, the grey water, the ruin of a jetty, looks like coal burning tugs, and a the newly refitted Wave boat.

Very atmospheric! Must have had her refit in Swan's Drydocks, Wallsend; well known to the RFA! Passing Hawthorn Leslie's on the LHS of photo.
I have happy memories of sailing on her in 1964 and in her very latter days in 1966.

This would make a great print hanging on a wall.
