Rare Edwardian boat-building photos from Salter Bros Ltd (part 3)

Below are the third of a collection of rare photos of boats built by Salter Bros Ltd around the beginning of the twentieth century (c. 1900-1910). Some of them were slides used for promotional purposes. They include some of the earliest motorboats and steel-hulled craft built by the firm, as well as some craft built in the inter-war period, i.e. after the Edwardian period.
