The new posh apartments now front onto these barbie and I dont think they will be allowed to be reused,, cos of the objections of the owners of the Apartments....Dont Cha Know !

If you look on old pics of the Overhead Railway at Herculaneum dock you will see these Containments when they were in use.
Barbie

Oh righty, cheers.

That's the overhead railway bridge,as it goes underground to Dingle station,which you might remember,is where the tunnel collapsed,recently,and the houses above had to be evacuated!

These are after the site was cleared, for the garden festival in '84.

Good pics MOJO..it is interesting to see the lake before it was filled.

Here is what greets you if you are approaching the area , via the little used, Dockers Steps from Grafton Street .




This mural was created by Alan Murray and is at the foot of the Dockers Steps by Herculaneum Dock , Liverpool .

The theme of this mural is Liverpool history and culture - then and now. Each panel shows a different time line of Liverpool and how it merges into the next generation and its contribution to Liverpool good or bad. The painting shows people arriving in Liverpool looking for work - it goes on to show prosperity and poverty, the overhead railway, ship building, the second world war, Toxeth riots, dockers strike and a selection of Liverpool characters (famous and not so famous) who have contributed to Liverpool culture.
