Plenty of memories, apprentice here in the fifty's and more regularly in the early sixty's. Craft everywhere you spend a day looking for a particular barge, lots of activity with timber and timber products. The Russian ships often on the buoys in Canada and Quebec docks unloaded softwood and sometimes furs & mercury in small and very heavy flasks. They would also load refined sugar from Tate & Lyle via Silvertown Services Lighterage. Cunard had a regular run into the Greenland dock 2 funnel ships Alsatia was one I think carried grain from Canada again I think. I also remember dockers running softwood ashore from deck cargoes H&S would have a fit today.
