Still on the Canal - Port Weller

12"X12" Oil on canvas

Port Weller Dry Docks

This area by Lock 1 is often glassy like this, sort of like a mill-pond.

I find these massive old industrial buildings rather majestic. This building (do they call it a hangar?) is big enough to take one or the giant lakers which come here for refitting and repairs. The crane is either "Bonnie" or "Clyde". A few years ago there was a tragic accident when one of them came down in a storm, taking its operator with it.
