Abstract: I do not think, that it would serve any useful purpose to trace the early development of the Port. The fact is that for years all goods were carted through the streets to and from Kingsbridge, Amiens street, Westland Row, Harcourt Street, and a large proportion to the Broadstone terminus of the M.G.W. I think the best course to adopt is to refrain from further ancient history and to commence with the year 1873, the date when the Spencer Dock was opened. That in itself was nothing, the Spencer Dock is very defective, but it marked the time when the M.G.W., the G.S. & W., the G.N., and the L. & N.W. railways united to form a general railway centre at the North Wall, which was completed, more than ten years after, when the so-called Loop Line was constructed connecting Westland Row with Amiens-street station.
