    Hi Guys

    Does anyone have images they could post of this ex LNWR depot that was on the corner of Wavertree Road and Tunnel Road?

    Hi Mike, I've just had a quick search through the images I've got and have found nothing. Maybe someone can come to your aid.

    There are shed retail places there now. Was that area a depot?
    The new Amsterdam at Liverpool?

    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?

    The depot is marked in red on the attached map extract. There is a photo in Liverpool Our City Our Heritage by Freddy O'Connor. Above the main entrance it says 'Fruit and Vegetable Depot LMSR 1881'. I always remember thinking this was odd as the LMSR only came into existance in 1923 but if you looked close you could see that the letters had been changed and it had previously said LNWR.

    Kev, thanks for looking

    Regards

    An utter crime that was. Knocked down without any say so or warning from the council.

    Hi Cadfael

    Agree completely! I think the steps down are preserved but that's it!

    Interesting inside views. Looking at these I remember visiting it around the same time with the roof removed. Did you get any shots of the outside?

    Regards

    Mike
