The Empire Port

A pamphlet issued for the 1938 Empire Exhibition in Glasgow to extol the values of the Docks at Southampton - the Southern Railway were mighty proud of these important port installations and made the claim that they were the Empire port. The image show the 'new' Western Docks, the massive quays that substantially extended the port's facilities and that opened in 1934.
