The port of London
« on: 11 August, 2010, 08:04:53 PM »
Hi

I have now got a book which belonged to my uncle, who used to be a docker, it is called.

         The Port Of London   (official handbook of the port of london authority)      1963 hardback,
a very interesting book .lots of black and white photos of liners and pictures of the docks, there is a photo of the P.O ship the Himalaya, this brought back memories, of when i sailed on her in the summer of 1964, the boat then was full of ten pound poms looking for a new life in australia and newzealand,the film on the boat was the Beatles,  Hard days night .

have seen a copy of the book on amazon for about 13 quid
