Great Picture of an old timer
This is actualy Corsair (3) ex John White Fleet built in 1892, sold to Fenwick Tyne & Wear Co Ltd in 1925 and not scrapped until 1955 in Gateshead.
I bet it was cold on that bridge in the winter!

Still a wonderful picture, pity there was a bottom of BlythSpirit's threasure of sharp colour photos from a time where most pictures are black & white. This old paddler you can nearly step aboard, and she was built in 1892! Thanks again Blyth. Regards, Stein.

I spent nearly a year on the Atlantic City in the 1950s, With Capt. Danny Lloyd and Captain Passmore. The Ch/Off. was George Ellerby, many happy memories.
