Re: The English East Coast

The DISCOVERY
When sailing in the Dutch coaster La Paloma as a cook in my school-holidays of 1958, we passed this famous ship in which Robert Falcon Scott went to Antarctica in 1901.She is fully restored now and returned to the town where she was built : Dundee
Gouache 30x40cm
Included a pendrawing of the same event-in reverse.

Lovely paintings, I always fancied exploring round that area. Read a few Barge books about it .

Re: The English East Coast

you catch the colours and light of the east coast well, a distinct mood of its own

Re: The English East Coast

Hi,Forum.The South-edge of Queenborough,Isle of Sheppey,Kent,UK is formed by this creek.
Laid-up at Queenborough is the trawler Ross Revenge,who became the pirate pop-station Radio Caroline
Passing Upnor Castle is the paddle-steamer Kingswear Castle(1924). The Dutch admiral De Ruyter visited this area in 1667 and made a mess of the English fleet

Re: The English East Coast

Where ships come home to die
The British East Coast river Orwell runs from Ipswich to Harwich ; half-way to Harwich lies Pin Mill ; an extensive mudhard,a shipyard and a famous pub :"Butt and Oyster,where once Admiral Nelson sat down.One side of Pin Mill is formed by wrecks, a junkyard.Here's an impression....

Re: The English East Coast

Hay for London's horses
Depicted is the Thames barge "EVA ANNIE " on her way and passing one of the many power stations that were built during the 1950's eastwards of London.
Very practical: they brought in the hay and loaded the horse-muck as freight for the return-voyage, as fertiliser for Essex and Suffolk,Norfolk.
Gouache 30x40 cm

Re: The English East Coast

75 years since......
A Liberty-ship called Richard Montgomery left the US of A in 1944 with a cargo of ammunition,destined for the Allied Troops that were clearing Europe from the Nazis.She anchored in the Thames estuary and there her anchors dragged due to thick weather. She stranded on The Nore shoals where she broke in two pieces as the tide fell.The gouache shows the ship dragging her anchors and what was left of her.
30x40cm

Re: The English East Coast

Saw her in the distance a few times on my trips up and down the Thames on 'London Merchant'. A trip up the Thanes, late 1950's was vastly different then. Ships of dozens of different companies coming and going, Docks and Jetties full of ships loading and discharging cargoes, and the river full of Lighters drifting on the tide, controlled by a lighterman with a big sweep. Iím so glad I was privileged to see and appreciate it at the time.
Jim

Re: The English East Coast

Hello,Jim. A vivid description of the port of London. We are much the same : I was 15 years of age when I first made a trip along the docks of Rotterdam- and that was in 1958. Why did we never meet ?!

So was I, but in those days, there were many more of us. Now you would be more likely to meet someone from your own village in the Philippines, India or the Balkanís crewing the ships.
