Any information on the boats, or the approximate year of this post card would be very welcome. Are these two ferries, used to take people and
goods to Hull? Can we see the buffers of the railway extension on the left-hand side (which would place the photograph after 1907)? Any information would be most welcome.

This wonderful postcard of Winteringham Haven has lots of points of interest. In the foreground is a boat which looks as though it is ready for repair,
bearing a mark apparently “CO 39”. Another boat looking for repairs is hauled up the slipway with the boatyard buildings on the right. Between the
two boats, but a little further towards the mouth of the haven, is the floating, or dry dock. In the middle distance is one of the Winteringham ferry
boats with it’s mast prominent, and beyond that the railway siding contains several trucks parked up beside the two minerals chutes whose woodwork shows just above the trucks.

This postcard, kindly supplied by Chris Snowdon, shows the Haven looking south towards the bridge. There are two boats laid up on the bank, and
a brick building with tall chimney on the boatyard premises, though it would appear that the boatyard has closed by the time this postcard appeared
. Again, lots of interesting features! Below - the background of the postcard, enlarged.
