Re: Bill Quay looking East
Thanks for posting that lovely photo Peter. What a beautiful view showing 5 vessels at Pelaw Main Staiths (Called that because the coal came from Pelaw Main Colliery near Chester le St). As a little lad I remember seeing 'Danmark' and Danzig on the ships getting coal from there in the late 40s early 50s.
The next vessels are (I think) loading up at the Primrose Staiths.
The first Chimneys are the Tharsis Sulpher & Copper Companiesand past them can just be seen Tennant's Chemical Works Chimneys..
