Albert Weller slide, River Mersey, dated July 1974:

This came to me captioned as being the BISON, her original name, but which clearly did not match the approximate date.
My own records confirmed I had been on the same Mersey/Manchester Ship Canal trip as Albert (and others from our Society) on 6 July 1974, proved by my own almost identical view:
