I took this in the Royal Albert Dock looking east.
This must have been one of her last visits?

Good shot Scorcher and thirty five years under one ownership is not a bad record . You must have been standing at what we called "The Shops" to take that photograph?

Great historic pic Alan, a busy and bustling port ships and cranes as far as the eye can see. A sight we'll never get to see again.
Thanks for the post and for the memories!!
Cheers from Aussie

Could well be 31/33, Scorcher, it's right at the top of the Albert anyway.(Thumb)

Cheers gents! half a century ago next year !
I must admit the old girl was a pretty basic design with a stove pipe stuck on a boiler in a bath tub. I deliberately placed her to the fore though...out of respect.(A)
