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