We received a message from Colin Hobbs who is looking for photos of Tipton, the coal and diesel boat featured in our article here

Colin says “My Mother’s family worked and I guess lived on Tipton in the 1930s and 1940s, and I was wondering if there may be some old photos of the family about somewhere. The family name was Holt, my grandfather the skipper was Arthur Holt. They may have worked other boats but this is the only boat name I remember”.

If anyone can help, please contact Colin at halsewell@lineone.net
