    Came across this pic' of the"Mammoth" lifting a 200 ton tug,taken about 1946.
    Thing is,I've heard that name mentioned,not so many years ago,so is it the same crane?

    The Mammoth in the photo was built in Holland and owned by the MD&HB until 1986 when it was sold to a Swedish company and renamed Baltic Mammoth. It was scrapped in 1998. The MD&HB replaced it in 1986, naming the new vessel Mersey Mammoth, which is still in service in MD&HC ownership.
