T1935. This admission ticket was issued to a Councillor Robinson admitting him onto a steamer trip marking the opening of the Manchester Ship Canal. The Canal's opening on New Year's Day 1894 was marked with a procession of ships sailing along the Ship Canal, carrying Company Directors and other dignitaries. Later in the year Queen Victoria visited the region and formally declared the Ship Canal open. The reverse of the ticket details the 'Principal Works Between Latchford and Manchester'.
