    Default xmas at the liverpool docks 1968

    [IMG][/IMG]
    The tugboat Rossmore guiding the cargo ship the Norman Prince through the
    Liverpool docks at xmas time in 1968. Notice the Xmas tree tied to the mast
    for decoration. This was scanned from one of my old colour slides which very
    conveniently always had the date printed on them which saves trying to remember when they were taken.

    The Moores brothers seem to have settled down in their new home on
    Old HALL now.

    Lovely photos.
    I don't know why, but I've never been to the Stanley Dock with my camera.

    Anyone got pictures with ships in it?

    Hi Waterways,
    I think it was the Alexandria dock, possibly being towed to the Langton dock

    Fabulous pic, gregs dad. I am not surprise that singer songwriter Alun Parry is using it on the cover of his Liverpool 800 album! What's the news about that album? Is it already out or expected out?

    Alright I've answered my own question. It's on CD Baby, baby.

    -- and I have ordered both of the CDs that Alun has on CD Baby. Looking forward to receiving them.

    I think you would enjoy the Stanley Dock area Philip. You have the locks at the end of the canal, and I can recommend the the mobile outside the Heritage market they do a big bacon butty and tea. Thats what I had on tuesday after I had taken a few pics then carried on to the Waterloo dock to do a bit of fishing from the wall .

    I love sneaking Into that dock to take pics of that clock.

    Even easier now as the bad weather has blown off the fences on where I get In.

    I'm a great fan of Greg's Dad.
    I was very surprised to learn that he wasn't a professional photographer.
    Of course I love his black & white photos, but his colour photos from the early 1960s are extremely rare.
    Here's one of New Brighton which makes an old bachelor like me feel very broody.

    Sir!!! a Great photo indeed!!!! Must have been around 1961 then. The ship is of the Blue Funnel Line. And what a cute little girl!!!! She reminds me of my little girl.

    I did mean the Stanley Dock with ships in it. :-)

    Thanks Philip. The little girl in the colour pic is the one on the dock wall a couple of years later.The all sat still for the picture because they are all eating chips. We had no Macdonalds then.

    Shaw Saville? Any idea of the name? The funnel looks Blue Funnel and does the wasteline.

    3 chimneys at the back belonged to the Clarence Dock power station and were known as the 3 sisters. They were demolished in 1994.
    The young lad looks as if he is hanging on to the stern of a barge or narrow boat.

    Found this from the liverpool records office taken in 1932.
    No ships I`m afraid but a few barges which I presume have been delivering coal.
