HARBOUR PHOTOS FROM JOHN HENDY - 2

Shipping scenes from a famous photographer

By Andy Gilbert

I have recently been in touch with John Hendy, who is well known as a marine photographer. He is also the author of many excellent books on ferries and shipping and a contributor to many of the shipping magazines.


He's a local man, born in Lewes, and Newhaven was his 'home port' in its heyday. He's very kindly allowed me to publish some of his work on Our Newhaven, and we will see photos from the 1960's almost to the present day. 

Here are four of the well-known visiting paddle steamer Waverley, taken on 19th and 23rd April 1978.
