The following pictures were submitted by Ken Harrison who now lives in Canada, but was brought up in Lowestoft and learnt to sail on the Broads.  You can find some of Ken’s memories of sailing in the 1930s here. Ken went on to become a Naval Architect and Surveyor and was commissioned by Richardson's boatyard to design three wooden cruisers for them between 1947 and 1951. His original plans for these cruisers can be found in the Paper & Ephemera section of the archive under Boatyards & Boats. You can also find more of Ken’s photographs in the 1950s Gallery.
