Photo reference number: 1310

From "The Alexandra Docks, Newport" published 1914:

"The repairing quays and wharves have a river frontage of 600 feet, possessing very deep berths, and they can accommodate steamers of almost any size. The wharves are equipped with five locomotive cranes of quick capacity. A very large loading and discharging business is done at these wharves, where every despatch can be relied upon. The principal cargoes include pitwood, iron ore, pyrites, and continental cargoes."
