Boats crafted from best quality woods
THE Three Brothers was built in 1912 for just £75 by Bridlington's famous shipbuilders Siddall & Son.
The company was founded in the 1890s when the Bridlington- born Baker Siddall started building boats.
Baker's workshop in Bow Street still stands to this day.
During boat-building season, the workshop was a popular place to spend an hour or so watching the boats take shape.

The types of boat built varied in size and shape and included the Yorkshire cobles, which are unique to Bridlington.
There were never any plans to work from, except a few measurements scribbled on the back of a cigarette packet.
The wood used was always of the very best quality, including larch and oak, chosen while the tree was still growing in Boynton Woods, near the town.
Many of the cobles built by the firm, such as Frances, Silver Line, My Judith, Elsie May, Three Bs and Mon Plaisir, became familiar sights in Bridlington harbour.
