Portishead Dock JEH_22046_048

Portishead Dock, North Somerset. In 1860 a deep water dock was built to accomodate large ships that had difficulty reaching Bristol Harbour. With the closure of the adjacent power stations in 1982 the dock lost its primary purpose and was closed in 1992. It has since been redeveloped as a marina. Photographed here in November 1970 by Jim Hancock

Manchester cotton warehouses 21161_02

Whitworth Street/Princess Street, Manchester. This aerial photograph shows the cotton warehouse district of Manchester, most of which date from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Manchester at this time was the focus of the Lancashire cotton industry and traded cotton both nationally and internationally. Many of these buildings were constructed not by independent merchants but by cloth manufactures with mills elsewhere

The Strand 21760_11

The Strand and The Embankment, Westminster, London. In the centre of this aerial photograph is Shell-Mex House, part of which was once the Cecil Hotel, the largest hotel in Europe when it opened on 1886. Today the Strand has three theatres: The Savoy, The Adelphi and the Vaudeville: in the 1890s it contained more theatres than other street in London. The street has housed many public houses and coffee shops since the 17th century and has attracted a wide range of people over the years from writers and actors, to pickpockets and prostitutes. Photographed in August 2002
