A blast from the past!

I vaguely remember them as still being in operation when my interest started in 1960 (although I could be wrong!!) but I do not recall seeing any of their vessels, if they were still running them by then. Corporation Dock is adjacent to the Transporter Bridge, now the new location of the Tees Harbour Office, based in the former Fire Brigade building.

Very interesting, Ron. Have not checked them all in CLIP but LEEDS SUN was from Henry Scarr at Hessle in 1915, 62.2ft towing barge for Selby Warehousing & Transport Co. Ltd., reg. at Hull 30/09/1915.
By 1930 owned by Peter Spence & Sons Ltd., Manchester but managed from Goole Alum Works.
Reg. at Middlesbrough 1931 and by 1940 owned by Nellist.

MOODY (146884) was from CWG Beverley in 1924 for Great Grimsby Coal, Salt & Tanning Co.
SWEEP (135927) assume this one, Dutch built and reg. at Ipswich 1916
REONORA (146929) assumed, reg. Sunderland in 1924, in 1930/40 owned at south Shields, CLIP has no place of build :(

Lovely stuff....in the late 50's,early 60's, I used to fish with a chap called 'Old' Bob, who worked on the one remaining sand barge. Often when I was working visiting ships on No.6 or Ichaboe Buoys he would pass sitting on the stern and holding up a nice plaice or dab from Seal Sands ( as it used to be)...

Two craft not mentioned, Lady Ina, she berthed by the transporter bridge early in the sixties. She was an old Humber Keel I believe. She was one of the sand wherry's working from Seaton Snook to Britannia wharf. I made a couple of trips downriver on her when I was 13 or so. The fare was a packet of chocolate biscuits per trip which I thought very reasonable even though I had to work my passage trimming the sand on the way back upriver. The other craft was was 'Rachel', An old steam barge which cant have seen a lick of paint since Adam was a lad. I think there may have been another craft similar to 'Lady Ina' though slightly larger, but she vanished from the scene long before the lady. As to Sweep & Moody, Wasn't one of them sunk by a shell from a German aircraft during the war. I have a vague recollection of a patch being pointed out to me at some time. There was also a mention of it in the 'On The Waterfront column in the gazette in the early sixties. as was an article about the Lady Ina.

Now that you mention it, I do vaguely remember the LADY INA. She must have joined the fleet later than those detailed in the company advert above.

Based on new info, I have added/amended them in the shipbuilding sites, thanks Taximan!
