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. On the far right hand edge can be seen the High Light (built in 1810), one of the two navigation aids at the mouth of the River Tyne, which is still there although no longer used for its original purpose.
