50 YEARS AGO TODAY! Berthed on the River Tees this time - 13 June 1968:

My first thought was she must have been on Clarence Wharf, but that does not look to be the case. Therefore, I think she must have been on Cargo Fleet Wharf further downriver?

Well where ever she is she is having a wee deballast into the Tees
Which reminds me that I read an article about foreign bodies being found in ballast water samples taken from Canadian Lakers which are fresh water boats. The theory is that the organisms were brought from abroad in the ballast tanks of sea going vessels.
Guess they are the micro biological version of illegal aliens :D
