Peter Lamb has sent in these evocative pictures taken aboard PS Consul whilst in Tony McGinnity's ownership in 1963/64.

The man on the left is the brother of PSPS member number 1, Mrs Eileen Pritchard, and, on the right, is Alfie LePage, a long time AB on Cosens' paddle steamers at Weymouth. Tony provided nice new uniforms to smarten up his crew but I think that this did not altogether work with Alfie, a man who would often tell children that the best way to get a good suntan was not to wash!

 

Here we are in PS Consul's forward saloon and bar looking up through her magnificent skylight, with its Victorian domed glass windows, towards the bridge.

On November 14 1962 Weymouth Harbour played host to four paddle steamers, something which would never be seen again.

 

From left to right Sandown, Bristol Queen and Consul. The Embassy is behind us and through the Town Bridge.
