Preparation for the Daily Mail Race
Wellington Docks. Dover. Black and White photograph. The 1950 Daily Mail International Cross Channel Race. In calm water near the White Cliffs of Dover the little ships of the Daily Mail Channel Fleet prepare to sail,and on shore crowds prepare to see them off. Crowds were out at Cap Gris Nez to cheer the fleets arrival, and so were the Police with plans to control the crowds. From the Sam Rockett collection.
