    Thumbs up Georges Dock Prior to the Three Graces Being Built

    Here are several images of Georges Dock before the Three Graces were constructed.

    I'm mesmerized by the wonderful warehouse buildings now sadly gone.

    George's Dock forms a part of the basement of the Cunard Building. Snappel went in there and took pictures of the dock quay wall.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    love the pic of the bridge.

    as a kid I used to love being taken to see the warehouse by Wapping/Sefton St that had the giant pineapples on the top corners. By the time I'd thought to get a photo, it had been demolished.

    I know I could have started a new thread for this but decided it would be nice to get this one bumped up for Kev's brill pics.

    Someone on the YoLiverpool flickr group was wondering if there are any maps showing the old docks and their names?

    George's Dock and the Old Dock were the principal docks involved in the slave trade.
