  7. Histories
    Hi I've been doing some local history research into various aspects of Crosby, Liverpool, and have been studying a tragic event when three young schoolboys drowned at Crosby beach on 17 July 1893.

    Waiting for the ferry in April 2016. Still can't get my head around how much had changed since I attended the fireman's training school on Pier Head in 1965.
  15. Kathleen and May Schooner in Liverpool

    Topsail schooner I've featured elsewhere in the gallery when she was in Bideford. Ahh what were those silly people in Bideford thinking of letting this lovely little ship and its history depart their shores. Good on the Scousers for giving her a new home.
