Seefalke at Bridgwater Docks 1960s

Seefalke at Bridgwater Docks 1960s
A one-off from the days when I had a camera with a larger format than 35mm. One for which film went out of production in the 1970s. I think it only took about 12 shots per roll.

LutzP, tiabunna, Benny Tonner have particularly liked this photo

These lovely old black and white shots really are to be treasured I think, a moment in time captured for as long as a picture will last.

The only other shipping photos I took in those days were a couple of coasters that sat on the mud at Steart Island opposite Burnham-on-Sea. They were too far away to be anything but a ship-shaped blur! So they got binned years ago.

This is an historic photo - for me at least - as it is the earliest photo that I took - or it is the earliest one that I can find.
So this is one I definitely haven't taken for HFF purposes!
HFF all!

Great capture Phil, a little peek into the past of coastal shipping.

Thanks, Ben. We used to see the coasters coming and going past the beach at Burnham-on-Sea at high tide, but this was the only time I remember going down to Bridgy and seeing them close up.

I just love it! We had the same idea on fences, although my photo was last week :) - HFF

The fence is just incidental, but in photos like this, it is the whole nautical atmosphere that makes the picture.

Those were the times when boat did look like boats- lovely! The fence would't prevent anyone from falling in;-) HFF

The fence does look a bit weary, but when properly maintained it should have done the job. Very similar posts and chains were often used around the decks on ships.

Great historic photo! "Seefalke" seems a German boat!?

These old roll film images are historic indeed and, somehow, have a different feeling. HFF.

So I am historic now! I am very pleased to have a huge archive of photos taken by my father and other relatives, dating back into the 19th century. The bulk are family photos and railway ones.

Great old shot Phil. I love these old B&W pics. Here is one of mine from 1956: Auf dem Trocknen - High and dry - Neuharlingersiel 1956
