Hi Ray
I'm afraid that we cannot do that for you; you will have to upload the reversed scan in the normal way. I suggest leaving this one here until you have done that, and perhaps then you would copy member Covesy's interesting 2016 comment into a new Photo Comment

This photo needs to be flipped sideways. I have accidentally scanned the slide upside down.

I remember the Stephen Brown berthing at the North Shore Gasworks wharf in Kerosene Bay, Waverton in the 1950s when I was a boy. The coal after discharge was retorted to make the gas and we kids had to pick up the coke as it left by uncovered truck, spilling onto the road in Ross Street. it was used for heating.

Your caption says she's heading upriver to load coal........She looks almost fully laden in the pic.
