GUINNESS STEAM BARGES, 1927

A VIEW OF GUINNESS-OWNED STEAM BARGES AT THE BREWERY’S EXPORT WHARF ON VICTORIA QUAY, DUBLIN, IN 1927. THESE BARGES TRANSPORTED CASKS FROM VICTORIA QUAY DOWN THE RIVER LIFFEY TO THE DEEPER WATERS OF THE PORT. CROSS-CHANNEL STEAMERS (SOME OF THEM OWNED BY THE GUINNESS COMPANY) WOULD THEN CARRY THE STOUT DAILY BETWEEN DUBLIN AND THE PRINCIPAL BRITISH PORTS. THE IMAGE IS TAKEN FROM AN OFFICIAL HANDBOOK AND SOUVENIR PROGRAMME FOR ‘SEACHTAIN NA CATHRACH / DUBLIN CIVIC WEEK, 1927’.
