Description

Oil painting by C T S Moore (1853-1901) showing a view of the Pomona Docks, Old Trafford in Manchester, on the Manchester Ship Canal. The Manchester Ship Canal runs for 35.5 miles between Eastham Ferry and Manchester and was opened on 1 January 1894 to link the city of Manchester with the sea. This enabled goods ships to bypas Liverpool which, by the late 1800s, was imposing high levels of tax on goods pasing through its docks. Steamer ships are shown in this painting docked beside the warehouses of the Pomona Docks.
