As mentioned earlier in the week, the former paddle steamer Ryde Queen is due to be taken apart by the end of the year.
That news prompted Isle of Wight photographer, Roger J Millward to pop down to the riverside this morning to capture some images of the former paddle steamer before she is taken away.
Nothing left that resembles the old girl
Roger tells us he was shocked at how much more it has collapsed since his last visit.
“There’s nothing left now that resembles the old girl.”
Roger shares this images taken this morning (Friday).

Then and now
You may remember the excellent then and now photo montage that Roger shared with OnTheWight in 2017. Showing the vessel as she was then and back in her heyday.
You can see more of Roger’s work on his Flickr site. He has some wonderful shots from around the Isle of Wight.
