Gloucester Docks c.1880 CC53_00092
GLOUCESTER DOCKS, Gloucestershire. The Gloucester and Sharpness Canal was built to specifications that allowed ocean going vessels to reach Gloucester, despite its distance from the sea. This allowed Gloucester to compete with coastal docks in the 19th century, as this picture shows, and it had a profound effect on the commercial aspects of the town. Photographed by Sydney Pitcher, c. 1880.
