|A very rare event on 25th Feb. 1993.
This is a former Flandria vessel dating from about 1889. Now a floating resteraunt in Ipswich Dock.
She had been on the Shipyard slipway just outside the enclosed dock. Imagine my surprise when the lock gates opened and she emerged proceeding back to her berth, (just in front of the glass fronted building)in the photo. Under her own power, goodness knows when the engine had last been used!! It was just by chance I was there to see it!!
