Photos of PORT OF WORKINGTON : Can you help ??

9th November 2008, 22:04
Hello All,

I am a newbie here, and although I am 50 years old, I am a newbie to the world of ship photos !

I would love to hear from anyone who has photos of the PORT OF WORKINGTON or that area, taken in the period 1970-2000. My partners father took many photos in that time of the same area, and he would LOVE to see what other photos people took of the Workington area during those years.

If you have any photos of shipping traffic in or around WORKINGTON, would you please get in touch with me at : email address removed for safety - please contact via Private Message (PM) Steve mod team

Thanks in advance

Hi Mark,

Yep..thanks for the reply.

"Ninja"'s photos are the only ones I have come across of the Port of Workington, and I am SURE there must be loads of enthusiasts who have pics of this Solway Firth port.

Incidentally, I well remember the "Oldside" and "Mossbay" busily working away down at the docks, when I was a kid !

Thanks Again Mark
