Description: This photograph was taken at 'Dockers Re-united', the PortCities event that brought together retired London dockworkers. The event, which took place on board HMS 'President' on the Thames, was a resounding success. The dockers gave an invaluable insight into their daily lives on the waterfront at a time when London was the world's greatest port.
