Photographer's Note

Taken in Leith, Edinburgh, near where I live, in the Leith Port

The company was established in 1967 as the Forth Ports Authority.[2] It became responsible for pilotage on the Firth of Forth in 1988.[2] It was privatised and first listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1992. In 1995 it acquired the Port of Dundee on the River Tay and the Port of Tilbury on the River Thames.[2] In 2007 it bought the Nordic Group, who manage terminal operations at Chatham.

Leith is located on the southern banks of the Firth of Forth and is 2 km north of Edinburgh city centre. The Port of Leith is the largest, enclosed, deep-water port in Scotland and has the capability to handle ships up to 50,000 DWT. The port offers a full stevedoring and cargo handling service.
