Great photo Keith i think the dock is the Princes Dock. The liver building in the background not yet completed in your photo.
That photo would've been taken around 1910/11. :wink:

These photos were taken by Joe Neary.

Thanks for the memories Joe. I sailed for Ellerman and Pappayani out of Alexander docks when I left school. Do,t suppose you have any photos of them. One thing about the history of the docks is the shortage of photos of the shipping company signs that were placed on the walls of the sheds showing the company flag and ports serviced. They sure told a wonderful story to Bucks growing up in the area. Allen.
