This view of the harbour shows fishing boats trapped and  immobile in the frozen seas of 1962/63. Ripples of water were captured in the sub-zero temperatures to provide a maritime version of a petrified forest.

The photograph is also fascinating from another aspect. Back in 1963, there was no West Quay pier and an old silo occupied the North Quay. The picture below shows what it looks like today.
