Freda Cunningham River Tyne 1990's.
This was just withdrawn and replaced by the pride of the Tyne (see picture #4781
) when this pic was taken somewhere around 1995/6. I remember travelling on this in the 70's with my Nana. I wonder if this was the one used in the 1971 film 'Get Carter' during the sequence where Michael Cain has a gun fight with the hoods whilst leaving the Ferry.
