Another shot of Rea's Willowgarth moving through Langton Dock Liverpool, she seemed to be often around when I had a film in my camera. I thought, with a Palm Line funnel poking up above the warehouse, it might have added interest.

Could be a Harrison Line vessel stern just visible in the graving dock on the left.
Cheers,
David

Great shot, Palm Line funnel is a nice touch, little things like that create atmosphere.

Willowgarth was the head tug on my first ship, Achilles, leaving Birkenhead on 24/12/58, and she was head tug when docking in Liverpool 3 months later. The first of the 'modern' style Rea tugs on the Mersey.
A great photo.

Harrison Ship must be one of the Quintet Sisters, Discoverer, Naturalist, Novelist, Philosopher or Statesman.
