Then and Now
« on: July 08, 2017, 10:02:16 am »

How times change! Two views of the river Hull through the city of Hull. This is not the docks as such, just the river to the Humber where the real docks begin, these are barges supplying the sugar, grain and soap mills situated along this stretch.

The second one from this era, just the old sidewinder trawler Arctic Corsair which is a floating museum. on a brighter note, the city has just got funding to move her to a drydock further up the river where she will be permanently out of the water and the ship and surrounding area will be refurbished..

Well boaters? in around 1971-72 ish My Brother Keith ..now departed....built several boats .. a Police launch of the time (river) and this had a small (not Glow) but original diesel (compression) motor of the time with water cooled motor and my recollection is it went quite well? My younger Brother (......) found some in the attic clearing out? and today as a result of his hard work and forward thinking fitted out with (electric) motor well .... WoW is not out of place Photoes and small video of proof it now runs (possibly just a little ? better its hard to say when you were there both times  so after about 45years it is a picture? will try and post one??

If using Windows, there is a resize facility in Paint.  Most other image handling programs have a similar facility, there are also apps that do the job.  You may not have noticed, but this site is not run by big business with unlimited resources, but one guy who relies on donations.  If you want to donate enough to cover unlimited storage for an unlimited time, it will be welcome.
