Artist's Description

Skippool Creek jetty
lancs England Skippool was once a bustling port where ships from Russia and Barbados would unload their cargoes of wine, rum, sugar and tobacco.
By the mid 1700’s the volume of shipping activity at Skippool and Wardleys is believed to have exceeded the Port of Liverpool.
A number of businesses were situated alongside the river, including Silcocks Bone Mill and Tomlinsons Animal Feeds Warehouse. There was also a small shop that sold tea and sugar to the boatmen.
During this time Skippool was a popular site for cock fighting, smuggling and press gangs, and the Ale Houses were infamous for their strong ale, contraband, spirits and drunken mariners.

Camera used Sony A100 18-70mm Lens
