Just another day in Harland and Wolff

Harland and Wolff Abercorn shipyard. Photograph dates from 1906 and shows all three slipways fully occupied. Unfortunately the photograph does not indicate the vessels under construction but at a guess from the building records and the approximate date they could be "Salamanca" yard number

I take it this photo was taken one microsecond after the knocking-off whistle blew on a Friday afternoon. :)

We call it a "Mexican Minute" Brian......The difference in time between the traffic light turning green and the first horn blast!
