The Target sank opposite the Graving Dock sometime in the fifties. According to one of the old hands that I worked with,the TCC tried to raise her using the two slag barges Numbers 40 & 41 shown in the photo. Unfortunately they were unsuccessful and professional contractors were brought in. The other barge, shown '39' was a screw pile barge and was in use well into the sixties.
