9 Dock was once the largest and most important on Salford Docks. It opened in 1905 and was home to the passenger and shipping company, Manchester Liners. At over half a mile in length 9 Dock was big enough to hold 10 large container ships, enabling the Port to remain internationally competitive.

Since then the area surrounding 9 Dock has dramatically transformed from industrial landscape to luxurious waterside development. Today it is home to residents and businesses including The Lowry and MediaCityUK. This sculpture documents and celebrates that story. The surface is engraved with quotes by local people, who also helped to make decisions about the final shape, materials and colour.
