The Haven
Postcard of Haven - 1200 dpi 1600w

This beautiful post card of the Haven, and the boatyard, carries no indication of the photographer or publisher.  It is thought to have been taken in the 1900s.  The boat in the dry dock (a floating dock that the boat could sail into, and then the water was pumped out) is the May Day, which was built by Richard Dunston at Thorne, and was captained at one time by William Phillipson.  It is of 50 tons.  (See close up bottom left). The boat behind the May Day is probably the Winteringham Ferry.  The small boat in the foreground appears to be called the Valkyrie.  The Boatyard at this time was owned by Routh and Waddingham.
