|A general view of Whitehaven Harbour on the Cumbrian coast, taken in the mid-70's, when I was encarcerated in the laboratories of Albright & Wilson Ltd.
Hard to imagine that in the late 1800's, Whitehaven was the third largest port in UK after London and Liverpool. It boasted a thriving shipbuilding industry, including the 'af Chapman' still extant in Stockholm and featured in shots on this site, and was also the birthplace of the famous Brocklebank Line.
