    Default Derby Road


    s
    Some Liverpool scenes set in the walls of Derby Road. I think these were done in the 1990`s when an effort was made to clean up the dock road areas

    There are/were a few others. I know there's another ship one. A couple of others were lost when a car-showroom was built a year or two ago. One of these, a train, was unique. The other one was duplicated, elsewhere along the road.
    If anyone wants to search for them, they stretch from just North of Stanley Dock Tobacco warehouse to just past the train engine (outside the scrapyard). I don't think there are any left on the East side of the road, anymore.
    Take a trip soon and you can photograph the nearby Tate and Lyle Conveyor, before it gets demolished. Also HMS Intrepid is getting scrapped at Canada Dock.

    March 2004. The Train has since vanished, when the wall was demolished/lowered for the Audi showroom:
