The photographs listed in this collection trace the history of the Manchester Ship Canal Company in pictures. They cover all periods of the Canal's history, from the passing of the Bill in 1886, to the construction period in the 1890's and the early days, right up to the Second World War period and through its heyday in the 1950's and 60's; and finally to the decline of the upper reaches in the late 1970's and the closure of the docks in Manchester and the development of the site as Salford Quays.The descriptions listed are the details printed, or written on or with the photographs. Where no details are shown, but it is known with some certainty what the subject is, the details are shown in brackets. Where nothing is shown on the print and it is not known what the picture portrays, it has been shown as an unidentified print.A list of abbreviations is shown covering the many photographers, large and small, who produced the photographs in this collection:AAP Airco Aerial PhotographyABCPA British Council Photograph, 3, Hanover St., LondonACO Aircraft Manufacturing Co.
