PortCities UK

If you were drawn to the image of the sailors in port from the last post you might be interested to know that it came from a wonderful and rich website called PortCities UK

The site is divided into 5 sections, one each for the ports of Bristol, Hartlepool, Liverpool, London, and Southampton. Within the sections there are numerous essays and images addressing the issues that formed that particular port. As an example, the London section has an essay on "Prison hulks on the River Thames", "Trades, industries, and institutions", as well as many others. The site also includes a "Fun and Games" Section and an e-card option. Which I had lots of fun with.
