  • Description

    Full title reads: "Redcar. 'For those in peril on the sea ...' Holiday crowd see latest type of motor lifeboat named and inaugurated from Yorkshire's oldest lifeboat station."

    Redcar, Yorkshire.

    Crowds are gathered on the beach around the new lifeboat. Fairground stalls are also set up on the beach.

    Closer shout of the lifeboat - I think the name reads 'Louisa Polden'.

    CU of boats Captain. CU of woman who is to bless the boat.

    The lifeboat is moved down to the sea. The crowds watch.

    The boat sails away from the beach.
