Blyth chain ferry, 1960

  • Description

    "Scanned from an old slide of my father's, my mother reckoned this was the Tyne ferry at South Shields, but thanks to other geograph contributors it has been demonstrated from other sources to be the south bank end of the Blyth chain ferry. The chimneys in the distance are the Cambois power station. Both that and the ferry no longer exist although NZ3182 : Ferry Landing shows the remaining industrial archaeology."
