    Always been a fast walker In town, like to not spend too long around shops. A lot of people slow me down walking too slow, can understand elderly and disabled people moving slow but able bodied people should move more.

    Guess one day I might try to make a good photo out of the place but I don't like most of the architecture.

    Something I could help notice in these new fangled all singing and dancing malls in Manchester and Wigan recently, and now it seems here too - a lack of bins.

    I took this one for my ..ahem...litterbin photo collection
    I only took a photo , not the bin...so can't blame me .
    This was outside Debenhams on Monday


    I've been complaining about the complete non-existence of bins at PSI since they built it.
    They put them in the Queen Sq one so why they couldn't manage even a see through bag on a frame is beyond me.

    Great comparisons ADW.

    My wedding reception was in the Moat House - 1988 and the pics were taken on the grass outside near the swimming pool. So different today eh?

    Different and, in my opinion, so much better, Ged. There are concerns about right of way, but that is an angle to keep a beady eye on.

    Greatr pics of the recent past ADW; I still remember the area like that...What a transformation! Some of me does miss the Liverpool of old. For example, the old Paradise Street Bus Station was a pleasure to use in my view. Used it during work experience at Merseytravel. Fond memories.

    Well like my signature says these things take time. Does anyone remember this ? What happened to this awful scheme. This comes from the ''Liverpool city centre plan'' of 1965. Am so glad that this never got off the ground what we have now if far better.

    That proposal sounds exactly the same as what we have now...but minus the concrete. It talks about escalators connecting with various streets, we have this now where South John Street is connected to Paradise Street ect. A further similar idea is the Arcade, although what has been built now is a slight twist on the concept.

    To me its just a bland 60s shoping center, with flats on top very much like bootle strand. If it had been built, am sure it would now be as bad the strand. nothing to inspire anyone there, unless you like photos of smack-heads.

    Saw the strand for the first time In my life last February when I got the train to Crosby. Awful tower blocks and cheap looking buildings, Bell Vale shopping centres worse.

    Liverpool hire some terrible architectures over the last 40 years. The old buildings are brilliant and we should of maintained a reputation of great buildings.

    Be interesting to see what the impact is upon the rest of the city centre and if it pans out once the party is over. Would also have been nice to have seen more Liverpudlian labour employed in its construction.

    I agree, despite some scouse accents, most of them are from the wider region and beyond!

    took a load of pics in the car park this afternoon...here's just a handful






    not quite as good as I'd have liked, but my vertigo didn't help



    and a few outside




    the old dock...glass is a bit grubby so that doesn't help the view much

    thanks. erm no idea, I don't have a car . I only went in there to take pics.

    my hubby did mention there was a way to pay by credit card plus there's a tag of some sort to get in there when the car park is secured of a night.

    it's a great car park actually. lots of CCTV and very light and airy. I'm sure lone females in particular will feel very safe using it.

    I've got to nip into Debenhams on the way to my Nans tomoz so I can always nip in Qpark and have a look.

    Quincyg has caught the new Strand carpark nicely. I would recommend it.
