Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ian Collard's collection of snapshots of post second world war shipping in the River Mersey shows the triumph of the maritime cargo
and passenger trade in the port of Liverpool just before the shift to containers and mass airline travel. Intercontinental vessels, European and regional coastal vessels, and the local support vessels that were a familiar sight to residents and visitors are all displayed. The pictures were taken with a popular, not fancy artistic camera, mostly from the landing stage, ferry and Isle of Man boats on which the author was a devoted seasonal traveller. Not only are the great Cunard, Canadian Pacific, Elder Dempster, and Pacific Steam Navigation Company passenger liners here, but also the Alfred Holt, Ellerman, Hall and Clan line cargo ships too.There are some glimpses of docks, especially graving and layup docks on the Wirral side of the river, but the focus is primarily on the ships. The men that worked them are largely absent, as are the passengers, whether emigrant or simply rush hour city workers.
Nor is there any strong representation of the loading and unloading of cargo, the embarcation of passengers, the security and customs precautions, the vast shipping offices. Ships, ships, ships, and what variety: from the regular transatlantic liners to the Irish and IOM boats, ferries, salvage vessels and giant floating cranes. Of course, there is no sound, no fog horns, hooters, lifeboat maroons, wash of the IOM boats each day along the Wallasey beaches. Nor is there any sense of what nowadays would be termed "environmental consequences," that is the debris from storms, launchings and repairs, thrown over foreign matter, not to mention all those Mersey goldfish. Pilot boats are here, but no storms, fogs, spring tides, sandbanks.
