|The Royal Albert Dock was opened in 1880 by the Duke of Connaught. Seen here on the 15th February 1981 with left to right: The Chinese vessels Tao Lin, Xiang Jiang, Han Chuan, Chun Lin & the Brazilian Maringa.
By October of the same year cargo handling at the Royal Docks had ceased, though a few vessels used them for lay-up purposes until the end of 1983.
