100 tons

The crane on the right is built into the dockside it was steam-driven with a lifting capacity of 100 tons!, Alexandra dock Hull Circa 1984. I often used to visit the dock in the early 80’s, it had been mothballed in 1982. The place felt like a sleeping giant which was eventually awoken in 1992, I was lucky to be one of the official photographers on that day, one of my images being turned into a painting which was hung in the port managers office.
