Some photos from Battleship Wharf


Recommended Posts

Some more photos of Battleship Wharf. First one is of the scrap side looking past a very young me at the rear of the J type, a Leyland Comet with a 350 engine 5 speed box and a vacuum operated 2 speed axle and a Gardner engined Smith Rodley rail crane,  towards the woodwork shed and engineering shops. Also the end is nearing for a 1940's icon as a Liberty ship is preparing to berth for the last time prior to demolition.

Is there any chance you could zoom in closer on the original of the top one of the ship photos please?  Im just interested in trying to read the name.  I can make out, I think, nine letters in it which does narrow it down but I cannot be certain.  If the date is 1970/71 there is a chance we can I.D. it.
