      I am pretty certain that the little vessel alongside the Albert Pier, centre right, is the small steam-powered tug Chew Magna which was used in the late '40s to tow barges of scrap iron from HMS Warspite while she was aground off Prussia Cove. This is one of two photos in this collection in which the Chew Magna appears. They are the only photos of this vessel that I have found after searches spanning many years. My thanks to whoever uploaded them.
