I mentioned in a recent post that in the days before buoys, modern technology, and electric powered lighthouses, that ship's captains used to line up the sightings of two white towers on the north bank of the River Tyne to navigate the deep water channel. Here on the left of the picture we can see the High Light and on the right hand side hiding behind the white house we can see the top of the Low Light, both in North Shields.
All of the small craft moored in the centre belong to people in South Shields, many of them used for sea angling trips.
