  • Description

    Full title reads: "Nr. Liverpool. A Strange Accident. Not a soul injured when giant oil tanker 'British Commander' crashes into & cuts Egremont Floating Bridge like cheese!"

    Nr. Liverpool, Merseyside.

    Shot of the bows of the ship - 'British Commander' - close against a bridge. A small dinghy is floating in the foreground. Tilt down - people are standing on the beach looking at the scene.

    The smashed bridge lies in the water next to the ship. Shot from underneath the remains of the bridge showing the damage. Various other angles of the damaged bridge.

    Good shot of the stern of the ship - the name is clearly visible, as is the propellor.
