Advert for the Manchester Ship Canal

Advert for the Manchester Ship Canal

Back to the story

T1683. This wonderfully illustrated advert details the statistics of the Manchester Ship Canal and the Manchester and Salford Docks. It was produced while the Ship Canal was under construction, as it shows the section at Ellesmere Port and Saltport open for traffic, with the rest of the Canal described as being 'open to Manchester early in 1894'. The Ellesmere Port section was opened in 1891.
