Carlisle Pier Fuel Racks

Last reminder of the Ferry days

Racks for refuelling the mailboats.

They were first installed when the campshires were extended in approx 1968.

In the case of the Carlisle Pier, the campshires were the concrete quay tops – the space between the berth and the side of the building. The space between the berth and the building was no more than a single walkway. In the second shot, from 1969, they’ve finished construction, and there is much material still lying around.
