As a child in the last class of Minster Infants School, Beverley, before moving on to Spencer County primary School, I well remember the class being taken by
our teacher, miss drury, to see a ship launched into the river Hull at Cook Welton and Gemmel's yard in Beverley. That ship was the Yorkshire Belle that sails out of Brid. to this day. What a sight as she went into the river broadside as all C. W. & G's ships did due to the limited width of the river.
I worked on the Yorkshire Belle when i was 17teen i have put scores of ship pictures in town hall in beverley last year.
