No. 4 barrier in 1989, 1

Alan's picture shows that the boat in the corner has gone to the back of the day a bit, the sand is encroaching, but at least some of the blockship is still visible. Again compare with picture 219.

Alan writes:

"[The pictures] feature my beautiful wife Laurie (nee Wylie) and adorable younger son Bryn in front of a blockship at No 4 barrier July 1989."
