This memory is in:

The south docks were still working, I mean when we’re talking about shipping lines, you know they are coming because they’re in Lloyd’s list. The rep would check the dock entrances for each tide as to what was due in and then you would be up and running. If you were living in Ellesmere Port and you were supposed to be meeting something in Garston you made damn sure it was actually coming in before you went all the way round.
