EDITORS COMMENTS This aerial photograph, EPW012666 from the Historic England Archive, offers a breathtaking view of Grimsby Docks in North East Lincolnshire, as captured by Aerofilms Ltd in 1925. The image showcases the Royal and No. 1 Fish Docks, a hub of maritime activity that has shaped Grimsby's identity for generations. The Dock Tower, a prominent feature in the scene, stands tall and proud, serving as a testament to the area's rich history. The tower, with its distinctive red and white stripes, was built in 1852 and served as a vital navigational aid for seafarers entering the docks. Surrounding the tower, a myriad of boats and ships can be seen moored at the docks, their sails furled or anchors dropped. The fish docks, with their neatly arranged sheds and cranes, are a hive of activity, as fishermen and dockworkers prepare for the next catch. The photograph also reveals the expansive reach of the docks, which stretch out towards the North Sea, providing a clear indication of the scale of the maritime industry that once thrived in Grimsby. The image is a snapshot of a bygone era, offering a glimpse into the past and the vital role that Grimsby's docks played in the fishing and maritime industries. Today, the docks continue to be an essential part of Grimsby's heritage, attracting visitors from far and wide who come to explore the area's rich maritime history. This photograph serves as a reminder of the past, while also highlighting the enduring importance of the docks to the town and its people.
