Baldwins / Co-op / Sheerlegs

By Laurie Stonehouse

The following photograph shows a detailed view through Bridge street in the early 1960's. Baldwins has many newspaper headlines on display, while the dark car in Chapel street has a pram attached to it's roof. I wonder have the owners just purchased this item from the Co op! Towering overhead in the distance is the giant sheerlegs crane which was situated on the Railway Quay.
