Hastings Harbour Arm at Sunset

Hastings Harbour Arm

Here is Hastings Harbour Arm as the sun sets. The Harbour Arm was used to shelter the burning cargo ship SS Lugano in April 1906. The fire started as the ship was sailing in the Channel on the way to Hamburg, but grew so out of control it was towed closer to shore.  This enabled rescue boats, including the Hastings Lifeboat to work on extinguishing the flames. Photographs of the incident can be seen here.
