    A bit of unknown Clarence Dock history..
    The unknown gaol cell...


    ADVERTISING





    The photo below shows the entrance to a 'cooling' gaol at The Clarence Dock...
    behind where I'm standing in the photo is the actual gaol cell..
    it was used mainly to lock up drunken foreign Seamen that had had one too many and were rowdie around the Dock Rd area....

    This Cell entrance area is now very securely tinned up..the whole area will be tidied up and made into a tourist attraction...I'm told this old gaol cell area will be made to look like it did as sort of museum....most of the area has already been tidied with the old workmens huts being removed....I have videos I made inside this old cell/gaol...and videos all over the area inc inside the huts that have been removed....

    Hopefully, future generations will be able to view them to see what the area once looked like..


    Clarence Dock... the cooler..

    more photos in the film strip under the main photo..
    click any photo to view...

    as bedwarmers all with one fire
    That brings back some memories.
    We had a moggy which sat on the hob when there was a meal cooking in the oven - my Gran named it ~Hunger-on-the-hob!
    The space above the pictured oven I assume was the Damper.
    Like in the old song
    "You push the Damper in and you pull the Damper out but the smoke goes up the chimney just the same"
