The Haven

I spent many happy hours down at the Haven, fishing and playing in general. I also collected coke from the gas house round the corner down what was then the weigh bridge, dodging the steam from the locomotives.

Order Boy

I was order boy for quite a few proprietors, one being Mallorys in Prestongate. This photo is slightly earlier.

Hessle,The Haven

Fishing for eels here, especially during the school holidays. Loved watching the ships built by Dunstons being side-launched into the water - huge waves! Also saw the 'Winston Churchill' being built and eventually launched after it blew over during construction.
