The first six photographs by Philip Parker are close up views of NAHLIN on board CONDOCK V as she passes through the Liverpool Dock system en route to Langton Lock prior departure on July 27, bound for Hamburg, Germany. The historic vessel has been bought by German interests. One can see just how tight fit the NAHLIN proved to be with the stern door still partly open.
