The Manchester Ship Canal

 

The Manchester Ship Canal Company, as mentioned elsewhere on this website, was my employer from 1970 to 1982 so it's always with very mixed feelings that I view Ship Canal photographs.

Coming up shortly on this website will be some pictures that I took down at Irlam Locks on the Flixton side.

Those photos really do make me feel sad - such a busy canal and busy locks are now just remnants of a bygone age. Also a sign I think, that I'm getting old.

Hang on is that violins I can hear?
