Photographer's Note

The old paddle-steamer "Ryde" has been in a mud berth on the Medina River for many years. Initially the idea was to restore her to her former sea-going glory (she was an Isle of Wight ferry until 1969), but as this photograph tells, she's unfortunately gone well past any hope of a rebirth: even the Paddle Steamer Preservation Society have regretfully given up on her. So she rests in an open grave: an eyesore, or a reminder of what we have lost?
