Artist's Description

Here we can see Riyal Daffodil arriving at Woodside stage from Liverpool. The ferry boats operate a number of small river cruises but basically ferry people between Woodside, Seacombe and Liverpool. The “Royal” prefix was granted to the ferries Iris and Daffodil for their service during the First World War where they were instrumental at the Mole in Zeebrugge. Both ferries were badly damaged but returned home to a triumphant greeting. Since the original duo’s withdrawal, there have been other Royals. The Royal Daffodil 2 was arguably the most luxurious ferry ever built. She was hit by a bomb and sunk at her berth in the Second World War, but later raised and returned to service, with little of her pre-war splendour.
