Tilbury-Gravesend Ferry

Early 60's at a guess

Some photos of clean new looking Tilbury Ferry. I would guess early days of the sixties.

  • I also remember the steam ferries from the 1960’s.
    I remember looking down and watching them stoking the boilers. I think Catherine was the passenger ferry and Tessa was the car ferry.
    Here is an interesting link to the history of the Tilbury ferries from 1855, including many pictures.
