Boys aged 12-15 were trained in seamanship, with many going on to join the naval services.

Carpentry & plumbing, Training Ship Wellesley, North Shields

Boys learning carpentry and plumbing on the Training Ship Wellesley, on the River Tyne at North Shields, Northumberland. In 1868, James Hall and other local businessmen set up a charity to provide shelter for Tyneside waifs and train young men for naval service. Their base from 1874 was the Wellesley until a fire in 1914 forced the institution ashore to become the Wellesley Nautical School.
