The Last Mersey Docks Camel On The Move

Photographs  John Hake 2009

The above photographs show the last former Mersey Docks and Harbour Company "Camel" bring moved through Sandon and Huskisson Docks believed en-route to Canada Dock for breaking.

This Camel last saw service in 2008 as a temporary link span for the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company at Prince's Landing Stage when the link-span pontoon was undergoing modifications . This Camel was one of two built by Fergusons in 1957. It is not clear which of the two (Camel #6 or #7) it is as it no longer carries any markings.
