Here's a couple of pic's of the same area,last year! I'm not well up on dock names,but all the sand, looks like it's gone,in your pic's Joe,did they use it to infil the dock next door? I've thrown in a old pic of this,I think,as you can see the bascule bridge!
az_gila, Here's a photo of Ogden's office block in Boundary Lane, about 3 miles from the Clarence. The factory has now closed and this is the only building that remains.

Greg's dad & wsteve55. Superb photos
Nice photos guys.
Pipe tobacco and Snuff is no longer produced at the Boundary Lane Everton factory, and I can't tell you what goes on at the office block.
I took the photo recently because rumour had it that it was coming down. It is a listed building but in Liverpool that doesn't mean a thing to the Council. As we have witnessed over the years.

Is there a thread that lists all the buildings/structures of special interest or architecture i.e. Sailors Home, Floating Roadway, etc. that have been pulled down?

Thanks Oddsocks, I've never seen it before. Great building, shame we lost it. Ant idea when it was pulled down. I'm sure it was before my time.
Keeping it real!

Sorry Pablo, can't help you there.
Except to say it made way for the Nautical Training College when it moved from Oldham Street (Dickie Bond's catering college).
But I don't when it was actually demolished. But I'll make inquiries.
Sad we lost it.
Since Steve posted one of Gerard's photos, thought I'd give ya a link to his flickr photos. He's taken some really good photo's lately (not suggesting that he hasn't always
Nice one Smurf.
What's with that avatar?
I'm trying to find photos to add to the family history we're doing for my husbands' Aunt Connies 88th birthday. Her grandfather was a manager at MacSymons Store, eventually in the Export Department. I see that you mention a photo which includes the store, but I don't know what I'm doing with this web site, so is there any way I can have a look at it without breaking the rules or incurring a huge fee?! If possible easy, idiot proof instructions please Thanks Helen Stanley
Started the Old Swan Website:
I noticed a postcard for sale, a couple of years ago, Macsymons Buildings, next to the Sailors Home (another building in Church Street is advertised in one of the windows as 'Sale Rooms')
The building shown is mentioned in the National Archives, concerning bomb damage:
"Canning Place: correspondence, papers and drawings concerning war damage to premises of MacSymons Stores Ltd. 720KIR/2101 1940-54"
