|Description: Passengers leaving the Orient Line's 'Orcades' at the Passenger Terminal at Tilbury, shortly after its opening in 1957. This brought new levels of comfort for travellers into and out of the Port of London, but within a decade air travel had captured most of the market for long-distance travel.|
