I do remember it but I don't know when it closed. My brother-in-law I believed worked there at one time so I could ask him when he gets back from vacation in 2 weeks if you haven't got the answer by then.   Val

How many wee Jimmy's were there in the yard. ;D ;D  My father-in-law Jimmy Henry worked in the yard. Did you know Big Joe Reid he was a foreman, did foremen wear a bowler hat? Big Joe wasfrom Sandy Row and he had son's work there as well. My cousin Kenny Johnston worked there also and he had a really bad fall, he almost died.
Jimmy, what year was the Canberra Built, I will talk to my Pop.   Val
