Gloucester in The 1950s/60s page34

Here’s a couple of nice photographs of Gloucester Docks taken by Peter Coleman and scanned by Peter Kwan from the original 35mm slides. Already we can see some of the warehouses empty, but there are a few working barges still busy.

In this picture we can see a pile of timber ready for the sawmill A couple of the more luxurious craft can be seen in these pictures – a hint of things to come?

Technically, the photograph below shouldn’t be on a site dedicated to old pictures of Gloucester, but we haven’t seen many like this and thought you may find it interesting. This is the Severn Bridge under construction.The Bridge opened in 1966.
