    When I was with Harrison Line in Canada Dock, the nearest pub was the Dominion (the Dommie) and the next one up was the Griffin.

    When overseas, if there were any bars nearby the nearest would always be called the Dommie and the next the Griffin. Not a lot of ports were you're near enough to bars to do it but fun when you could.

    Al,
    There's a good book on the history of Harrison Line 'Harrisons of Liverpool' by Graeme Cubbin. It's got the history, and pictures, of all the ships and is pretty impressive. 'Cubby' was a Captain - never sailed with him but met him once.

    Hi Kev,
    Thanks for the info sounds like a good book will look out for it. i dont suppose you know of anyone who has any old photos prints or slides of the ships that would be willing to sell! from the Mersey and Manchester Ship Canal 1950s to 1980s?
