Mersey steam tugs questions
« on: May 02, 2011, 09:02:13 PM »

Hi guys

a few questions for the experts.

What year did the last steam tugs on the Mersey operate? In particular Rae's?

There was a coaling wharf at Monks Ferry Birkenhead, does anyone know of any photographs of the tugs being coaled there?
and again what year did this finish?

many thanks for any help

Mike

googled Northcock and it was 1964?

how many were still operating say from 64 back to say late 1960?
