Hi
I have a small photo showing 3 vessels - Eastern Morn, Morning Star and 1 more.
Can anyone help with any information about them and where (when) the shot was taken?
Thanks in advance for any help.

It’s Bridlington, pleasure boats in the background either the Yorkshire Bell, the other is possibly the Flamborian or Thornwick. More info on them at Bridlington.net

gents we appear to be following these vessels up and down the east coast, are they trawlers? Or Drifters following the herring fishings season, and changes of ownwership, being registered reregistered in an east coast port.

Haven't been to Bridlington for years but that ship on the far side looks too big for Brid. Too big to be the Yorkshire Belle too. Having said that, the boat that all the people are boarding could well be a Yorkshire coble.

The two pleasure steamers in the background are (left to right) the Yorkshire lady and the Coronia,
My father did 2 summer seasons on the Coronia as mate 1960 -61
