Schooner Ashore at South Shields


Last night while the schooner Mary, which sailed from Sunderland yesterday, was putting into the Tyne for shelter, she got ashore near the end of the Fish Pier, South Shields, and remained for some time. The lifeboats from North and South Shields proceeded to the vessel, but their services were not requited, and the vessel was subsequently towed off by a steamtug and taken into the harbour. The weather at the time was squally, with frequent heavy showers of rain.
