Tuesday 15th January- Unexpected- but very welcome- visitors.
Frank and Eileen Lynn.
Frank and Eileen discovered us when visiting Edinburgh. Things to do in Leith encourages visitors to the vessel. During the tour we discovered that Eileen’s father had worked onboard the vessel from 1956-1971. As she was looking at the tour book- she saw a picture of her father standing at the Steam Winch! It made a lovely parting gift for her. 🙂
