More about this scene


Caption for Aberdour, 1897: A packed steamer is kept firmly alongside the pier as the Master on the bridge plots her progress carefully. She is either about to put warps ashore or has just taken them aboard. The length of the boat is fairly substantial compared to the head of the jetty, so she requires delicate and careful manoeuvring if she is to be handled
