Mucking About On The River

A Memory of York.

In the early & mid 50's as a lad I spent my weekends working in the boatyard by the bridge.
As you look at the picture it was downstream of Kendal bridge on the left. Access was through the arch on this side of the bridge.
A selection of rowboats & a motorboat river cruiser that did afternoon runs to Bishopthorpe Palace.
A start to a life of over 40 years at sea or involved in the maritime world that included over 22 years in the maritime branch of the Army.
Oh happy days.
