More about this scene

For centuries the Ouse had been used to transport people and goods in and out of the city. In the mid-1830s there was even a steamer service linking York with London. The journey took over thirty hours, and was an acceptable alternative to being shaken and bounced along the Great North Road in a mail-coach.

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.
