A photographic exhibition from the collections of Newport Museum and Art Gallery.

The history of the industrial development of Newport and the foundation of its great economic importance in the late 19th and early 20th century can be seen through the development of its docks and shipping.

Starting with the small Town Dock in 1842, this culminated in the opening of a large sea lock in 1914 which at 1,000 feet in length, was the largest lock in the world.
