    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?

    Still desperately hope Paul can overcome the problems he has with the costing of his tour de force.

    Just read the Toxeth post and the Herculaneum Pottery part aroused my interest. In the ealy 1960`s I sometimes went with our kid to the sand bank
    called the Burbo bank in the middle of the mersey to clean the keel of his fishing boat and while waiting for the tide to come in to refloat us we would find various pieces of broken pottery and dishes in the sand. In my ignorance I thought the were thrown overboard by passing ships but now I think they may have come from the pottery. We always collected coal from the same place for the home fire.

    It could be a combination of the two, old pottery and discarded. The coals? Was it from ships that sunk or rang aground? A few of them did run aground around Garston Rocks.
