Charlestown harbour looking out to sea. The harbour is full of a mixture of both steam and sail shipping. SS Westdale on the east quay, (left of picture) is steel built and screw driven. She was built in South Shields in 1911 and owned in Liverpool. The schooner, Belmont, built in Whitstable in 1895 and owned in Faversham is alongside the west quay, (right of picture). Alongside the east quay is the steel built and screw driven SS Central, whose funnel and bridge structure can be seen through the masts and rigging. She was built and owned in Kiel in 1884. On the left, in front of the cottages, can be seen the covered gantry carrying tram rails and loading chutes of the underground tram way that carried China clay from the large clay dry a few hundred yards away and out of picture to load the ships. Photographer: Herbert Hughes.
