And of course, no thread is complete without an old shot to compare. As you all know, the Tower was once the tallest building in the country.

good shots MOJO and Barbie, all that brings back memories of New Brighton days out when I was a kid. dont remember much about the Tower site apart from the fair and Dodgem cars.. remember the chippy in Victoria Rd , lovely chips and served in a cardboard tray with a wooden fork... never got that in any chippy in Liverpool at the time.. I thought it Dead Posh  haha.

As it was so windy,headed over to the West float,in Birkenhead docks,which,as you can see,is much bigger than anything on the Liverpool side.This building is another fantastic creation of Jesse Hartley,who built the Albert dock,etc. It housed the engines for operating the locks,and bridges,and is surely to be saved?

(complete with incriminating shadow! Laughing)   














...you can just make out the old rail tracks.  


the Mersey ferries riding out the storm,in the distance!



This ship has been here for some years now! It was impounded for non-payment of port fee's,I think,and since,has sunk! Seems a waste not to have done something with it,though!

Thanks Barbie,and Jan! I quite like mooching around old docks,industrial sites,etc,though there aren't that many left untouched,as it were!
                                                                                              Though I support "Peel's" plans for the North docks,it's a pity they've fenced it all in now,so there's no accesss!(unless you sneak in through a bit of damaged fencing Smile )
