Bromborough Dock 1931

In 1931, the President of the Board of Trade opened the new Bromborough Dock.

Work on the dock had begun in December 1924. It was owned by the manufacturer Lever Brothers (later taken over by Unilever). Serving the company’s factory at Port Sunlight, the facility was once the largest privately owned dock in the world.
