The Gur Mariner sails. 18th April 1990

EDITORS COMMENTS
is a captivating print that encapsulates the historical significance and technological marvel of its time. Taken in Middlesbrough's Teesport Docks, this image transports us back to the vibrant era of the 1990s. In this snapshot, we witness an awe-inspiring sight as The Gur Mariner ship sets sail on a momentous day. Its massive structure dominates the frame, showcasing its sheer power and grandeur against the backdrop of a clear blue sky. This vessel represents more than just a means of transportation; it symbolizes progress and innovation. The presence of arms and customs officials hints at the importance of security during this period. Amidst rising tensions in Iraq, where conflicts were unfolding, vigilance was paramount. A gun prominently displayed on deck serves as a reminder that even amidst peaceful voyages, ships like The Gur Mariner played their part in safeguarding international waters. Notably, what makes this photograph truly remarkable is its connection to history - specifically to "supergun1218". Although not explicitly mentioned here for commercial use reasons, it alludes to one of Saddam Hussein's infamous weapons projects known as "Project Babylon". This supergun became synonymous with controversy due to its potential destructive capabilities. Preserved by Teesside Archive TR through Memory Lane Prints, this evocative image allows us to reflect upon an era when technology pushed boundaries while reminding us that history can be captured within a single frame
