Caption: Pictured is the storage area for the shipyard at Albert Dock, Preston, in 1919. The wooden crates to the rear of the picture are moulds into which concrete will be poured to make sections of the concrete ships assembled here. These craft were built during World War I due to the lack of available steel.
