Re: Hebburn Colliery area 1918
As Davy said that sure looks like a ferry landing on the other side of the river. The Tynemouth was built by Wood Skinner, Bill Quay in 1917 for the Burnett SS Co. Ltd., in 1929 she became Lord Aberconway and in 1930 she became Gallois. On 8th August 1941 she was wrecked on route from the Tyne to London with a cargo of coal. She was part of Convoy FS 559 which ran into bad weather and 7 ships ran aground on Haisbro Sands off the coast of Norfolk. All crew were rescued.
