A Working Dock

 

Salt is being unloaded from the IVS Nightjar in Canada Dock, Liverpool. A dockside crame is discharging the cargo onto the dock whilst the Nightjar's own cranes are loading up the coaster Swanland for onward shipping along the Manchester Ship Canal.

Is this the stuff that's going to save us from breaking our ruddy necks this week Les?
Les Auld: Perhaps Chris, we certainly need it.
Funny that I live in a town that floats on salt and yet we import the stuff
Les Auld: Probably cheaper thank extracting it ourselves Bill, thanks for the comment.
Great action packed image
Les Auld: Thanks Martin, I was lucky with the timing.

That is one huge nightjar.

I see now the orange lifeboat on the Nightjar as well.
Les Auld: They have them big in Liverpool Louis, complete with orange boats. Thanks for the comment.
This is a big ship Les, I guess this will end up on our roads at some time.
Les Auld: Probably Brian, thanks for the comment.
