Ferry at dusk 1982

Posted by Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 23 March 2014 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

South Shields ferry landing on the River Tyne in March 1982.

You will notice that North Shields did not have a collection of smart new apartments on the river bank back then, also the cranes - we actually built ships back then! We had much larger ferries on the River Tyne because more people used them to get to work.

I used this to re-photograph Kodachrome 64.

Nicely re-photographed. Nostalgic '80s.

Very nice composition and superb views of the harbor. Always an old view, the result is surprising.
Does the use of this material for scanning, is not prejudicial to the sharpness of the photo?
Have a good Sunday.

Are you sure the ferry was bigger back then? The new one seems the same size to me.
