It's all a bit of a ruin!

The last surviving gangplank used to enable passengers to embark onto the boats at Princes Landing Stage when it was a going concern. I wouldn't fancy using it now though.

great picture of an interesting piece of history - if one looks at it now it is difficult to imagine the pomp that probably played out on this landing stage. great composition and good choice of mono.
Les Auld: Thanks Louis, have some old pictures showing this in use with hundreds of people queueing to board the boats to the Isle of Man. In the early part of the20th century the great liners used to depart for the uS from here.
I like it! I`m finding that I am really beginning to appreciate the merits of b/w, especially when handled so well. (:o)
Les Auld: Thanks Rosalyn, agree that B&W does have it's merits, i did put a faint sepia filter over it as well.

Good shot Les and a nice range of tones. A record of "progress".
Les Auld: Thanks for the comment, I suppose you could also say lack of progress depending upon your point of view.
