The two large black and white hulled ships in the centre are HMS 'Castor' in the foreground, and HMS 'Wellesley' behind. HMS 'Castor' was a naval training ship, permanently moored in the River Tyne. HMS 'Wellesley' was the renamed former battleship HMS 'Boscawen', and was home to boys who were being taught discipline and being prepared to take up the life of a seaman. This ship was destroyed by fire in 1914.
