Ted Russell Docks
The first image gives the actual measurements of the dock itself. Maximal length is 422 metres with a maximal width of 140 metres.
The second image is that of Bannatynes Mill. This building is a gem and it must be conserved. The image is scanned from Patrick E.F. Oâ€™Dwyerâ€™s school book â€œThe Irish Landscape in Photographs and Mapsâ€.
The third image must have been taken from the Clarion hotel. It shows the docks in a rather run down state. The second architectural feature worth conserving here is the Dockâ€™s Clock. Some fifteen years ago or so, some enlightened person made a suggestion on the local press to simply move the dockâ€™s clock onto the roundabout at the new bridge (Juryâ€™s Inn / Riverpoint). It would be a landmark monument to Limerickâ€™s Maritime past and it would be seen daily by thousands of people.
