'Anna D' Latchford 12th January 2005
'Anna D' had been acquired by KD Marine in 2004 to supplement the 'Gina D' on the grain traffic between Seaforth and Manchester dry docks. She is seen here at Latchford bottom level with 'Arklow Racer' catching up behind. If my memory serves me correctly, Anna D moved into the small lock and Arklow Racer used the big lock simultaneously. Busy scenes on the canal like this go less unoticed these days with the advent of shipais and marinetraffic sites.
