Todays photo is dated 29 Jan 1950 & is from the 100th Anniversary Day Regatta. The ferry spectators are watching the 18 footer race.
Who can ID the launch in the forefront?

  1. Hi Murray, Have not actually heard of the MARRIETTE but if you were thinking of the MARIETTA it’s not her


  2. Its is very interesting re the original wheelhouse on LM, I had always assumed she had the slanted windows as a result of the wheelhouse fire Nov 1943 and documented in her NAPS service record but it would appear not. Anybody out there with any idea? As for the other launch – no idea, great pic though.


  3. Remember seeing her around a lot, in that era, but for the life of me, can’t remember her name. She was always well kept.
    However, a lovely shot of L. M. in the middle distance, before her dodger days, but after she had her new bridgedeck. KEN R
