The general view of Penarth Docks from the escarpment on the southern side showing that the dock is reasonably busy during July 1923. But a General Strike and the great depression is looming and Penarth Dock is scheduled for closure for the export of coal in 1936. However, it was to remain open for ship repairing services upon the pontoon until 1962. The Ely Tidal Harbour was also to remain open for general goods, iron ore and oil based products to be imported. [026] [087]
