The picture shows this Anchor ready loaded on to a carriage drawn by a team of 8 Horses. Within minutes of this photograph being taken the arduous journey from Netherton to Liverpool Docks commenced where it was then loaded on to a ship and taken across the Irish Sea to Belfast for installation with 2 other anchors.

Two of the Anchors were installed, one to each side of the Titanic’s bow and the third (a spare) was locked down on to the forward deck.
