George Kensey Worked on the Docks

A small tribute to some of the many Salford and Manchester Men who worked at Salfords Docks in the boom years of the Manchester Ship Canal. Here thousands would load and unload ships that had travelled the 36 miles inland from Liverpool.

The monument is part of the irwell Valley sculpture trail and  represents the dockers Union Cards, each one featuring a image of the workers.

Being from Manchester and interested in Local History and Photography,  it is important that we all photograph our shared history as sometimes you blink and it has gone forever.
