News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Nice!
Any chance of an enlargement of the Langdon Prison bit in the first (and third!) photo?

Sorry, but what you see is what you get.  I think.

Yup, that's it.  On Monday I'll see what others we have knocking around at work.

Eastern Docks, to the east of Terminal Control Building and just past ED1/2 berths.  Can post pix if required (assuming I can figure out how to!) but for now see www.atlantic-cable.com.  A fair amount of stress given to the PO in the 1954 Dover Harbour Consolidation Act also.

Yes, Eastern Dock for sure. Recall the cable-laying ship (Ariel?) being moored there, always in the north-west 'corner'.

Hi - Does anyone know where the Post Office Cable Depot was situated in Dover Docks ?? I have a slide dated 21 11 1921 showing a small bridge carrying a cable with a partially dismantled warship in the background, there are no other identifying features in the background.

Thanks.
