Namgis experts fix Salford totem

THREE members of the Canadian first nation Namgis tribe are visiting Salford to fix a famous landmark.

Bruce Alfred and Kevin and Edgar Cranmer are visiting the Greater Manchester city to refurbish a totem pole that was given as a gift by a shipping company in 1969 for the use of Salford Quays.

The expert carpenters, who will be staying in Salford until 7 July 2010, will be fixing the renowned pole which was commissioned by Robert Stoker, chairman of Manchester Liners, and shipped to England in the summer of 1969. It was erected outside the company’s new offices, close to the Manchester Ship Canal.
