EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back in time to the bustling Grimsby Docks in August 1933. From high above, we are granted a bird's-eye view of Alexandra Dock, which served as an essential expansion to accommodate the thriving fishing fleet that made Grimsby famous. In this aerial snapshot, our eyes are immediately drawn to the impressive Victoria Mills standing proudly by the dockside. Its towering presence is juxtaposed with a charming moored sailing barge nearby, reminding us of the maritime heritage that shaped this coastal town. To the right of Alexandra Dock stands Corporation Bridge, connecting both sides of this vibrant port city. The bridge acts as a gateway into a world where trade and industry intertwine seamlessly with natural beauty. As we explore further into the frame, Central Market comes into focus along with its iconic clock tower. These landmarks serve as reminders of Grimsby's importance not only as a hub for commerce but also as a gathering place for locals and visitors alike. The timber yard adjacent to Alexandra Dock is abuzz with activity; lighters lie alongside it ready to transport goods across these busy waters. This image captures an era when hard work and determination fueled Grimsby's growth and prosperity. Thanks to Aerofilms' remarkable collection, we can now marvel at this historical moment frozen in time—a testament to Grimsby's enduring spirit and its deep-rooted connection with both land and sea.
