Two useful links here thanks all. The second one will be of great use to many for Family history research purposes

A print of the opening ceremony for the Wellington memorial.1863 I'm curious about the building on the left,with the large archways,but maybe Lime st.station's original facade?




This one's from 1875. Strange to see none of the present buildings,in
William Brown st.though I think that's the side of the museum,on the left!

Good pics MOJO. The grand frontage on Lime Street will be the original Lime Street Station Entrance of 1936. It was replaced by The North western Hotel , now university accommodation,   , modeled on French Chateau design in about 1879  .This was approx 14 years after the  finishing  date of the construction of Wellingtons column, hence , the image here showing the original Arched frontage.

I think the building just in view on the second pic is the Walker Art Gallery , next is Mill Lane, which s still there today, and the County Sessions Court House . of 1884 ,was to take the place of some of those other buildings on the right of the pic. I think the  Rushworth & Dreaper music store, now demolished for the Churchill way flyover approach road and the T&WU building   shown below, must have completed that row.

He took me for a walk around the cemetery about 6 years ago. I thought I knew the place since my mum and dad are buried there. The knowledge this man has of some of the more well known people buried there is amazing. I took that pic of him, by the way.
Barbie

haha....small world. Well Bob is brilliant! I never did get back with a box of chocs for his help. Might seek him out this summer.

Very atmospheric Pic..... Taken from Mill Lane. A Mill actually stood here until sometime approx mid !800s when it burnt down prior to the construction of the fantastic buildings  we see today in William Brown Street
Barbie

There were mills all over Liverpool wan't there! I never realised just how many.
