I was curious and just looked up the history of Dar Pomorza. It made quite an interesting read. The bit which particularly caught my eye was this (from Wikipedia): her horn, installed after the war, was from the German battle-cruiser Gneisenau.

I imagine that if someone hoots at you with the horn from a WWII battle-cruiser, you get out of the way sharpish.

HMS Ark Royal returns to Devonport Naval Base (Plymouth) on a grey day in the mid 1970's.

521.jpg

Here she's in the Drake Channel passing the East Vanguard Buoy, at the end of this channel is a 120 degree turn to starboard to negotiate The Narrows off Devils Point.

527.jpg

Having negotiated The Narrows the lead tug which is the only one shackled up to the Ark Royal begins a near 90 degree turn to port to pass Mutton Cove and enter The Hamoaze off the Dockyard.

530.jpg

Moored in The Hamoaze ahead of the lead tug is the Ark Royals sister ship HMS Eagle. Pupils from a local primary (junior) school would seem to have been given the morning off to come down to the landing stage at Mutton Cove to witness the event.

MV Eminence.jpg

Entering Sutton Harbour-Plymouth

The London and Rochester Trading Co motor coaster Eminence about to pass through the opening between two piers into Sutton harbour, almost certainly carrying a cargo of coal. Two crewmen already have a mooring rope standing by at the bows of the ship as it will only take her a matter of minutes to manoeuvre alongside the coal wharf. Her hatches are already open ready to begin discharging her cargo. She's followed by two fishing boats destined for the fish quay.

Sand Barge

In north Devon on the estuaries of the rivers Taw and Torridge there was a trade in sand and gravel, the small barges used to run themselves aground on the falling tide and then load up before being floated off by the incoming tide. This one will then motor up the estuary for about 4 miles to the town of Barnstable (Barum as her port of registry has it) where she will berth and unload her cargo.

Both taken in the mid 1970's with a Leica M3 and, at a guess, a 35mm Summaron.

If I remember correctly this creek at Kings Lynn in Norfolk (east coast of the UK) was known as the Fisher Fleet and was home to a whole collection of smaller inshore fishing boats mostly engaged in the shell fishery carried out in the Wash, a large tidal area of mud and sand banks that dry out at low tide and have a maze of ever changing channels through them. These images would have been taken in 1971 with an unknown 35mm camera.

Judging by the offset little wheel houses there were even what might be called left handed and right handed boats :)
