    Hi Arthur, I grew up in Runcorn in the 1950s. One of our delights was to run from the playground of the Parish Church School at lunchtime down to the Ship Canal (Ferry Hut) to see a 'Big Fellah' being slowly eased around the sharp bend at the Runcorn Gap. I remember Likes Lines vessels, but none of the other common lines that used the canal - can you help? I'm preparing a photobook of life in Runcorn in the 1940s - 60s (own use only). Cheers Rob

As well as Lykes Lines, (note spelling), other shipping lines that commonly used the canal in the 50's, 60's and 70's included Manchester Liners, Clan Line, Harrison Line, United States Lines, Brocklebank Line, Prince Line, Furness Withy & Co., Royal Mail Line, Elder Dempster Line, Ellerman Lines, Strick Line, Lamport & Holt, Pacific Steam Navigation Co. etc., etc.@ Robert Jones :
