Cranes & Trains in Bristol's Historic Dockyards

Load not to exceed 3 tons

These cranes seem to date to the fifties

love the rosettes on this big strong masculine crane...

The promenade along Bristol's famous floating harbor, 80 acres of tidal river that was impounded by locks and dams in 1809, preventing ships from falling over at low tide and transforming Bristol into one of the major seaport of Great Britain.  

I wonder what this tank is lined with?  glass?
