View Full Version : another try at coble colours C19th

21st January 2009, 21:19
I know i've tried this before but I really think it is an area of research that is in danger of being lost. I have a pretty comprehensive list of Yorkshire colours in the C19th but what about Northumberland? Looking at black and white photos of the period there are obviosly a variety of colours often with a darker landing plank colour. I have identified so called coble blue(what is this pre modern paint?) and red or black landing plank but what about other colours? Where do the colours on the Grace Darling coble come from?
