Me at Whitby giving my mother a trip in a rowing boat I'd be 15 at the time.
Very nice photo. Good atmosphere of missed sixties. like
That's a great photo Ian. Your mum looks very happy to trust that you will keep the boat the right way up! Nice that we were young in the black and white days ;o) A big like from me!
Blimey Ian thats going back a bit;-) i'd be 19 then...oh happy days. Its a lovely shot taken by your dad i'm summising. I'm wondering about the boat "CLARKSON" I used to know a Jackie Clarkson from Whitby his family were very involved with the Whitby Regatta, it just has to be one of their boats.
Thanks irtodelta glad you like the atmosphere of the sixties.
Not bad days the B&W days Rosa, I always managed to keep the boat the right way up, in those days you could row out of the harbour happy days indeed.
Hi Neil oh to be a teenager again, the shot was taken by my dad, not too sure whereabouts it was taken in Whitby though. You're probably right about the boat owners.
From the shallow water, the stone wall, the boat shed and the apparent close proximity your father captured this my guess is you were here. The majority of the boat repair sheds have been within that area for years. The photo also reveals a ford in the river that I never knew existed.
Great look back in time Ian.
That ford is a new one on me too Sam, i've been in that car park no end of times too.Perhaps its hidden by the boats which are usually there,to be honest though i've never really looked.
I think you're right as to where it's taken from Sam ,I didn't know about the ford either I'll have to have a look for it.
lovely trip down memory lane Ian they were good old days. Like Regards Richard
