The launch of CRESCENCE

These photos were kindly sent in today by Larry Horsfield , Larry worked at Cubows at Woolwich and took these photographs in 1981/2 during the construction and launching of CRESCENCE.    A wonderful look at the skilled men involved in ship building on the Thames and why we all hope it returns in the future and not every piece of river front is turned into flats!
