Great Yarmouth 1957. 'Bob (?) on River.boat'
Meaders Deneside Studio
Husband & wife team, Newman & Thelma Meader, specialed in taking photographs on pleasure steamers sailing from Great Yarmouth's harbour during the late 1950's - 1960's. The pleasure steamers they worked on included the Eastern Princess and the Golden Galleon, the latter being the name peeping from the bottom right of the photo above. The photographs would have been taken and processed during the duration of the trip so that you could buy a photographic momento of your cruise at the end of the trip.
If you'd care to click on this link HERE it will take you to 'Our Great Yarmouth' website and a photograph, also taken by the Meaders, of the crew of the Golden Galleon from the same period.
