I used to pass the Unicorn several times a week during the school
holidays when she was moored next to the Public Baths, in the Earl
Grey Dock.This was in mthe '40s when my Mother gave my sister and I
"twelve timers" to get into the baths !!
I have saved a couple of PCs of the Unicorn being towed out of this
dock, via the Camperdown Dock, to her later restring place. These PCs
were published by the Unicorn Preservation Society, Victoria Dock, Dundee.
Over the next couple of days I shall scan these and place them in our
web page, for all to enjoy. One shows her with two tugs fore and aft,
with a helocopter overhead, in mid river. The other shows her being
tugged out of the Dock area.
