Dan - the photograph of the carter on Hornby Dock would seem to be my Grandad. I was blown away to see this shot as I only have one picture of him. He died in 1976.

Any idea what year that would have been? And the source of the image please?

Many thanks for posting - I live in Kuala Lumpur and has not expected my Pop to appear right in front of me.

Don't allow dockers' hooks in the Albert Dock now, Davey.

If you do get there, best wear a top hat and tails. Oh, and a monocle, just to be on the safe side.

Albert Dock 2020.

Could I get the photos printed off, Dan, or do you think it would infringe copyright?

These are old postcards I saw on pinterest. I cite the source if there's anything specific.

Should be OK , provided you're not going to sell them on your stall at Greatie.
