NOSTALGIA: ‘Monster from the deep’ salvaged from Boston Docks in 1981 (GALLERY) – LincolnshireWorld

These pictures of the salvage operation were taken by Standard photographer Gary Atkinson and appeared alongside the headline ‘monster of the deep’.

The structure, which was almost totally submerged, used to be a quayside crane.

It had toppled into the dock basin earlier that month after being hit by a 1,100 tonne Panamanian-registered cargo boat.
