THE OLD DIVING BELL ON SIR JOHN ROGERSON’S QUAY
I love to visit the docklands at night as close to Christmas as possible.
One of my photographs [the only colour photograph on show] is included in the mini museum or visitor centre below the actual diving bell.
The Diving Bell was designed by the port engineer Bindon Blood Stoney (1828 to 1907) and built by Grendon and Co., Drogheda. It was delivered to the Port in 1866, entered service in 1871 and was used in the building of the Port’s quay walls until 1958.
