Were these vessels not called "flat irons" ?

Designed that way - low bridges were not a problem, the masts could be lowered (hinged) in a trice and re-erected apres the bridge.

Sure were called "flat irons".......I served as 2nd Mate on the Dame Caroline Haslett
in 1953, running from either Barry, S.Wales or the Tyne to Battersea and Fulham power stations.

I was Radio officer on the Blackwal Point and the accommodation was excellent, cant say that it was a comfortable trip with any sea running. A few times after leaving Barry we were forced to shelter in Lundy due to the weather but going up theThames to Battersea Power Station under all the bridges during the summer was a wonderful experience
