This is the Southampton to Woolston Ferry. The Ferry is on the Southampton side when cross channel ferries used to run from what is now Ocean Village. This was taken when the Itchen Toll bridge that replaced the ferries was being built.

Brings back many memories of clanking across the river in days gone by, so much more fun than using the bridge. Thanks for posting. Derek

Possibly Southern Ferries "Dragon" or "Leopard"?

The Swedish Lloyd Patricia would make a 08.00 hrs arrival from Bilbao and a 18.00 departure back to Bilbao every 4 days with the Normandy Ferries Dragon making a daily 07.00 hrs arrival from Le Havre with a 11.00 hrs departure back to Le Havre and the Leopard making a 19.00 hrs arrival from Le Havre with a 22.00 hrs departure back to Le Havre so this must be the Dragon at berth 2 with the arriving Patricia going stern into berth 3 in the former Princess Alexandra Dock now called Ocean Village.

In the foreground you can see the fomer link span and ferry terminal for Townsend Thoresen at berth 7, from spring 1980 Townsend Thoresen moved there terminal over to berth 3.

The Itchen Bridge was opened to road traffic in June 1977 by HRH Princess Alexandra who had named the former outer dock in her name 10 years earlier. The floating bridges remained in service for a week after the bridge officially opened untill the final crossings which were a big event, I should imagine it was during this period that the picture was taken as you can see both floating bridges decked out with flags as they were during that time.
