Very interesting image and local to me.

Any ideas on the ship's identity??

Walter Snowdon:
It's one of the excursion paddlers from bridlington which made regular trips to whitby in the victorian and Edward Ian period I can't identify it as yet as my two books on Yorkshire paddlers are out on loan at present regards walter

Spankbucket:
Thank you for that Walter...I will try using Google to get more info thanks to your lead.

Walter Snowdon:
I've looked at my postcard collection and I am pretty certain it is the S Scarbourer which made regular trips between Scarborough an whitby during the summer season during the victorian and Edward Ian period. I  have six cards in my collection each of a different paddler but all taker from the khyber pass viewpoint. Regards, walter

Spankbucket:
Thanks Walter.
