These shots are from a UK wide collection, dating from the 1860s, which is being split up on ebay. 5 sold for nearly £50. These are the Liverpool ones which I cunningly saved for us all Smile

The Nelson monument unveiled in 1813 seen here fifty years later. The chained figures are said to represent prisoners of war, not slaves, as many assume.


The Sailors Home. Stood in Canning Place from 1850 to 1969.


William Brown Street.


George III monument seen in London road. Moved from Great George Square to its present location in 1822 after eleven years in situ.



Prince Albert statue at St George's Plateau.

Great pic's DKL,but is the George 3rd monument in Great George's square,as it doesn't look like London rd,though it's obviously changed,over time?

Background has just changed over time Mojo. It's the same row with the bathroom place nowadays, but as it was.  It's there on an 1840s map and this pic deffo not before then.

Great Images  Dan, thanks for sharing. They were all great , and I was particularly impressed by the Nelson Monument and the London Rd Statue shots,, Ive never seen railings around the Nelson Monument and I've never seen those buildings in Monument Square-London Rd.
The date you have for the Sailors home 1969 is the date it closed but it wasn't demolished until 1974.

How are the Sales of your two latest Liverpool books going, I hope the Shops have adequately stocked them in now.

Good clarification on the Sailors Home. Me neither with the railings. I wonder how long they lasted?

No news on latest sales yet. They dont do a count until 6 months so a while yet. I imagine they wont be anything astronomically though   Shocked

Oh really? I'll have to go and see. So much stuff happens/doesn't happen with publishers. Authors are really just cash cows. Cogs in their machine.
