View Lavrock Bank Chimney
View of housing from Lavrock Bank Chimney: LRO.
Lavrock Bank was originally an estate or large house and is shown as a house, Laverock Bank.
In 30th June 1903, someone climbed the chimney of the refuse disposal works and incinerator on the Lavrock Bank site, close to Wellington Road and the southern Docks.
Anyone know what the building is in the distance?

Flour Mill, Mill Rd, Toxteth

The church with the spire in the background is St Johns on Park Rd/Park St. Now demolished. The church to the left of the mill is St Gabriels on Beaufort St, which is still there. The chimney stack to the left is the Old Mersey Forge which was closed down by then (1898). The disused stack was there until the 1960s. The site was never fully re-used, still pretty vacant today.
The houses in the foreground were built on the Miller Fields. What looks like a road at the side of the Mersey Forge chimney leading to St Gabriels, is just dirt and was not a road. I think it is still that way today. I never knew why it was never made into a road, it was clear it was designed that way. This waste land was referred to as the "Miller Fields". My mother told me people would have picnics on it in summer, desperate for any open green space.
To the right of the picture half way up, a construction can be seen. It is the steel frame of the Mill St/Harlow St tenements.
