The British Empire and its effect on Plymouth

The Barbican

This picture shows the busy fishing and commercial port known as the Barbican. Not to be confused with Plymouth Dock which was the name given to the military dock on the Tamar. Clues to the commercial shipping can be seen by the sign which says Luscombe, Bellamy and Co Shipping agents and beneath that is another sign which advertises the French Transatlantic Mail-Steamship Company.
