Barry Docks.

Barry Docks - A view of No.1 Dock with green hills where Barry town should be! Artistic license and a sense of humour of which I approve! The artist also had a twitch of his/her brush when touching up with brown tint the vessels moored mid-dock ; one too many Schnapps perhaps the night before! Another tinted postcard version of a Martin J. Ridley photograph which was probably badly produced by a German processing method. A heritage postcard record held within the Penarth Dock Collection.
