New member greetings

Hi, thanks for letting me join your forum.
I have been a photographer since the age of ten. Born and bred in Kingston Upon Hull. Was out of work for almost ten years back in the mid eighties through illness but tried to get out most days with my camera. My favourite place to go were the docks in Hull. Over a ten year period I have amassed hundreds of images of ships coming and going on the Humber and those berthed in king George and Albert & William Wright docks.
I hope to share these images on this site and hope they prove useful to some people. Images have been watermarked with the name 'Hull & Humber Shipping Archive' but happy to share if permission is sought.
I also have a minutes book from the Humber Conservancy Board for the year 1963 which lists various items about ship movements and the annual wage for the Humber Pilots. I will scan some of this and post to this site, it makes interesting reading.

Welcome aboard, I'm sure there are plenty of us who look forward to your pictures. Have you any of Hanson and ARC Dredgers?

Thanks AlbieR,
I do have some dredger images but until I source and look at them I cannot tell you the names and company they are. I have recently scanned about 400 images and the same number of negatives to my hard drive but as yet they are in particular order, this is my next job!
I will look for the dredger images and post as soon as I can

Smile Hull,.. St Andrews Dock,... RNMDSF

Hi,..I spent some time working on the Trawlers,.. ended up on the Stern Trawler mv Orsino when she was conscripted by HMG to be fulIy kitted out for a 5 month patrol as a Hospital / Weather / Support vessel for the UK fishing fleet at Iceland. (3 trawlers went down the previous winter, with loss of 59 hands ): I "lived" in the Mission in Goulton Street, between trips....I still watch a documentary, "Hull's Headscarf Heroes"... still find it moving. Shows it the Way it was, Warts and all...maybe you didn't photograph anything in St Andrews?.. Im always looking out for pics of vessels I was on,...sad person that I am

Welcome aboard and enjoy. Long shot I know but the only photo missing from the ships I served on is the Hull sidewinder trawler 'Swanland' H402, she was built in 1914 and I sailed on her in 1951/52

If you do come across one I will gladly reimburse any expenses you may incur

William Waters and Fairy Hill

I have just found your site as I am researching my family links with the Waters/Oag families in Wick. I noticed someone in 2012 also looking for info on the fishing boat called Fairy Hill which was owned by my Grt Grandfather from 1914-29. This person will be a cousin of my Dad. Any help gratefully appreciated in my search. I do have a couple of photographs which I will put on your site.

Don't recall the Swanland,... a bit before My time I think:.. The nearest similar "name" was the Swanella,.. owned by the Marrs Bros. I sailed on the Brucella,.. a sidewinder, (Marrs), for a hellish Christmas trip, up to SE Iceland... The memory forever burned in my brain,..lol

I know the Swanella, if I remember she was a diesel, the 'Swanland' was coal fired steamer, built 1914, went thro WWI and WWII as a minesweeper, scrapped around 1958, so as said only a long shot and living in hope! Trawling experiences in Icelandic waters and Bear Island are not easily forgotten

Welcome to the site. I did the first two years of my Engineering training in Hull at the Queen's Gardens college. Was in digs off Anlaby Road, and my landlady had previously been landlady of the Star of the West pub. Great times.
