Inscription and sign on Clarence Graving Docks gatepost
This is the southern gatepost at the entrance to the Clarence Graving Docks. A matching pair to the northern post SJ3391 : Inscription on Clarence Graving Docks gatepost this one also has an incorrect apostrophe, and it also has a height restriction plate of 18ft 2ins. I think that the height restriction was because of the Liverpool Overhead Railway, which used to run along the length of the docks. The railway closed in 1956 and despite much opposition was demolished in 1957.
