Reading this title without sight of the shot I had visions of enormous masses of concrete. Instead we see what was once a familiar sight where concrete was mixed on-site and even blocks were made locally! A fine and unusual Poole shot with men at work.
With thanks to today's contributions, the consensus is that this is likely construction (likely of the P&T exchange building) behind the main Post Office building (Custom House) off the Waterford quays. Whatever these hard-working men were building, there's been some interesting in-site
(pun intended) on the machinery and methods in use....
