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

A crowd gathered at Boston Docks in late November, 1981, as 100 tons of twisted metal – a toppled quayside crane – was hauled from 14ft of murky water.

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