Elder Dempster again. Must say I don`t recognise the bridge structure, & but for it being sourced from Preston Archives would question it`s location, certainly nothing like it there now.

ps Having done a bit a research this would appear to be on the River Ribble itself, adjacent to the eastern end of the enclosed dock & looks as though it was part of a conveyor system for a power station,(?), would welcome any further input.

Hello Frank, Can't identify the location. I only lived down the road, Southport, and never visited the docks when they were working. Went a few times after they had been gentrified but hardly recognisable as a working port. The Sansu was broken up by T W Ward starting January 1961.

Hi 'Bob' ~ sounds better without the app.

Good to see some '50s/'60s 'names' popping up on here with the associated EDs connection. You're six years my 'senior' so I'll choose my words carefully and try not to be too morbid but in my opinion the final nail in the coffin was my dear pal Derek Bailey's passing a year ago in five day's time. He WAS the E of E Newsletter and that died with him. Back up funding for the annual luncheon is also no more. That leaves just you 'P's ~ two in your case ~ and your coffee conferences; give my kindest to John Edge at your next meet.

Kindest to you and yours.

GGG

PS Captain Mike Kelly, an SN member, was my junior deck cadet on the 'Sangara' sixty one years ago. Time flies when you're a great granddad.

David, regarding the location I have put River Ribble in the location box. That was Preston in the 1960's, the photo was probably taken across the river from the docks just south of Penwortham bridge, and you say the gantry conveyor did supply the coal for the power station that used to be there.

As a family when we were kids we used to down that area picking Blackberries there were loads of them, I remember the place well.

Thanks guys for the other information...........


Cheers Frank

Frank, thanks for the update. I like your posting of the power station, but strangely enough I have no recollection of it, maybe it was difficult to see coming in along the Penwortham road. Perhaps the grey cells are giving up.

David, talking about grey cells, in the 1950's has I said we played and picked berries down in that area and I must have seen quite a few ships at Wards but I can not remember any of them, I was only 5 - 7 years old, but I can remember the berries.

Cheers Frank
