|Description: The Reception Hall at the Tilbury Passenger Terminal, shortly after its opening in 1957. For the first time in the port of London, this provided a full range of facilities and a sense of sophistication. However, within a decade, long-distance travel by sea lost most of its market to the rapid expansion of commercial airlines.|
