Manchester Ship Canal Dvd, Part 2: Warrington to Salford


SKU: 2193 Categories: ,



In 1955 Mike Lord mounted his bicycle and pedalled from Bolton to see the Manchester Ship Canal.

Fortunately he took his cine-camera and tape recorder with him.

The results of his visits from 1955 to 1964 are pure magic.

With over 120 ships on view, coal fired tugs, a ‘Liberty Ship’, Austin Healeys and double deck buses for export, these films show how busy the Canal was forty-one years ago.

Approx. 45 mins.

Region 0/Region free. NTSC versions are available on request.
