Manchester Ship Canal Part 1: Liverpool to Warrington
In 1955 Mike Lord mounted his bicycle and pedalled from Bolton to film the Manchester Ship Canal.
Fortunately he took his cine-camera and tape recorder with him and the results of his visits from 1955 to 1964 are a superb visual record.
With over 120 ships on view, coal fired tugs, a 'Liberty Ship', 'Austin Healeys' and double deck buses for export, these video show how busy the Canal was 41 years ago.
