Tug boat crew (2)

What we know about this image :

Skipper Norman Henry Wise (centre, in uniform), and other crew members aboard their tug. This photograph may have been taken from the Dock Head on the Headland, close to the Fish Quay.
The tugs in service used to tie up at the end of the Fish Quay. The buildings may be in the area where Heerema is today. The engine room skylights suggest this a steam driven vessel, possibly one of the old NER steam tugs Nos. 2; 3; 4; or 6; or even the William Gray.

The vessel in the centre background of the image is the steam drifter Happy Days (LT 185), which was owned by Stranton Drifters (R.H. Davison), of Hartlepool, between 1919 and 1926.
