9 - Old Crane Port of Dundee

Do you remember these old crane at Port of Dundee?

There were at least six of these cranes on the quayside, two in the section of the port that became City Quay and another four further east at the Port of Dundee. It is shame that they were removed as they would have given character to the area as a reminder of City Quay’s maritime heritage.
