Splendid pictures, Kev, and it is a fine sunny day in Liverpool.

Excellent pics, Kev. I bet u wanted to go on that see-saw too hehe
Good looking boy.
The new Amsterdam at Liverpool?
Save Liverpool Docks and Waterways - Click
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?

Thanks, nice to see this thread again
The old cafe in Otterspool Park looks ready for demolishing
Looks like rain on the Mersey
Looks brighter towards Eastham

Took a liberty with your photographs. I hope you like the sentiment. Will also post a couple of your pics elsewhere and of course credit you if that is okay.
Sick of the photographs
of oil-slicked pelicans
from the Gulf oil spill,
the chat about culpability
of corporate executives
and playboy serial killers,
I wish instead just to dream
like Millais' "Bubbles" and wander
the rhododendron path
of a childhood park.

Lovely pics Kev, I must go down there and enjoy the river scenes.
Also stunning pics gregs dad as usual.
The area around the old W.C. is due to be cleared soon, for better facilities. There are several large stone blocks scattered around Otterspool. Some have the remains of railings, some others have grooves. Pretty hefty, they could be from the dock/dam?
[QUOTE=Ronijayne;320622]Is there still a 'promenade' there? We used to go to the 'prom' a lot as kids.
Here's a couple of pic's of the prom' and local area.

In regard to those large slabs of sandstone that Marky showed and wondered if they were from the dock/dam that used do be at the mouth of the old Otterspool as shown in Griffiths' History of the Royal and Ancient Park of Toxteth, to my mind, there's a good likelihood that's where they are from. Particularly the big piece of sandstone with the notch in it could have been from the lock gate, conceivably.
