Royal Docks, London

Flintshire entering the locks for the Royal Docks, London. I'm sure there will be someone wearing a bowler hat on the quay checking that we do it right! Radnorshire can be seen alongside inside the dock. The berth that she is on, I believe now is at the end of the City Airport runway.

The ship dead ahead looks like one of the BI "W"s, Woodarra or Waroonga.

Good photo Mike. Many happy memories of entering these and West India locks, particularly after voyage home! I'd be surprised if the "black gang" weren't hiding around the area waiting to do their bit for Customs! Ben Line berth (11 Albert) just out of shot right.
