Mobile canteen at Coryton Refinery JLP01_08_008088a

CORYTON OIL REFINERY, THURROCK, ESSEX. A large group of Laing workers using a mobile canteen following severe flooding on the construction site of Coryton Oil Refinery.
On the night of Saturday 31st January through to the morning of Sunday 1st February 1953, severe floods struck parts of the UK, Scotland, Belgium and the Netherlands. The natural disaster is often referred to as the North Sea Flood of 1953. Severe flooding occurred along the east coast of the UK. The site of Coryton Oil Refinery flooded as the river wall protecting the site was breached in 14 places. An article detailing the disaster and subsequent recovery operation was published in the March 1953 edition of Laings monthly newsletter; Team Spirit

Looking for high-quality poster prints that can stand the test of time? Our posters are available in standard sizes (A0, A1, A2, and A3) and are printed on 255gsm photographic paper, which is thicker and more durable than the typical paper used for poster prints. This means your posters will not only look stunning, but they'll also last longer, ensuring that you can enjoy them for years to come. Size refers to the size of paper used.

Poster prints are budget friendly enlarged prints in standard poster paper sizes (A0, A1, A2, A3 etc). Whilst poster paper is sometimes thinner and less durable than our other paper types, they are still ok for framing and should last many years. Our Archival Quality Photo Prints and Fine Art Paper Prints are printed on higher quality paper and the choice of which largely depends on your budget.
