    Falaise - on trials

    British Railways' steamer Falaise. From the fact that she's absolutely pristine, and that there appear to be only crew on board, The concencus here at the Museum is that this probably shows her brand new and on trials.

    Falaise and Kitava

    In the 60's Newhaven could repair it own ships. Here, Falaise is being wedged in at the Marine Workshops, next to the bridge. The old Newhaven bridge and the presence of Kitava standing in for the Meeching (away for refit) suggests late 60's. Kitava was 'fun' compared to Meeching!
