Mersey Shipping Through Time

    By

    The Mersey has changed over the past thirty years. The famous ships and shipping lines have changed or gone altogether, the means of shipping goods has changed and the numbers of people working in the docks have drastically fallen. With the advent of box boats and superfast ferries, we no longer see many of the traditional vessels that once called. Ian Collard calls upon his vast archive, as well as modern images, to show us the changing face of the Mersey over the past decades. Inside are views of the Mersey ferries, the changing face of the docklands itself, on both sides of the river, and the ships that now sail up the Mersey to discharge cargo and passengers in the dock system.
