Unloading Ships at London Docks, 1908

Illustration showing various cargoes coming ashore at London Docks, in the East End of London, 1908. Elephants' tusks, barrels, boxes and crates are being unloaded from dumb lighters (engineless barges) onto the quayside for transfer to lorry or warehouse. The lighters were used to ferry cargoes between ship and shore and were so called due to their obvious effect on unloading vessels.
