Opening ceremony JLP01_08_67240

M6 Motorway, Knutsford Service Area, Knutsford, Tabley Superior, Cheshire East, Cheshire East. William Kirby Laing with the Rt. Hon. Ernest Marples, Minister of Transport, at the opening ceremony of a stretch of the M6 motorway through North Staffordshire and Cheshire held at Knutsford.
This photograph is from a batch which is recorded in the negative register as having been taken at Knutsford. However, in December 1963 in the Laing monthly newsletter Team Spirit, the photograph appears with an article recording that a short ceremony occurred at Keele Service area where a film was presented to the Chairman of Staffordshire County Council. This preceded the official opening, just over two hours later, of the Hanchurch-Lymm section of the M6 by the Rt. Hon. Ernest Marples. It also mentions that the minister had a tour of the motorway by coach. The opening ceremony is known to have occurred at Knutsford but some of the photographs may also have been taken at Keele

Naming ceremony JLP01_09_761278

Graythorp, Hartlepool. The naming ceremony of the oil platform Thistle A being carried out by J Potts, an apprentice draughtswoman at Graythorp.

In the early 1970s Laing Pipelines Offshore constructed the Graythorp fabrication yard and dry dock on the site of the old William Gray Shipyard. The company created a dry dock which was used for the construction of fixed platform North Sea drilling rigs for the BP North Sea Oil Project. Oil platforms, Graythorp I and Graythorp II were built at this site between 1972-1975, followed by Thistle A, which at the time was the largest steel oil production platform in the world. This photograph was published in July 1976 in the Laing monthly newsletter Team Spirit'
