    Danesis posted a couple of Albert Dock pics up on another site - pre-renovation. Here's a couple of 'now' views from almost the same place. I'll email them to him too.















    Note how the far corner of the Atlantic Pavillion has been rebuilt, almost seemlessly.

    I used to play in all that as a kid. The police and watchmen were forever chasing us out.

    All of L8 was. I used to play in the basement of the old customs house too. Countless half demolished buildings were around. I fell though the floors of one when I was 9 spending a week in hospital.

    The Albert Dock warehouses were used, although the dock was not. It was difficult to erect roof top cranes as the warehouses were too close to the quays. The warehouses were designed to take cargo directly from the holds of sailing ships. When steam ships came about the dock and its quays were pretty well redundant as steam ships required the warehouses to be further back from the quays.

    Cargo in sailing ships was in smaller containers: barrels, sacks, etc. Bulk cargoes were pretty well unknown in ocean going sailing vessels. Bulk cargo was scorned upon as it could shift capsizing the ship.

    Hi Ged

    Good to see these photos of the dock before it became gentrified.

    NEW signs and directions aim to help visitors to Albert Dock navigate their way around the tourist spots more easily. Read

    I was down there yesterday, it was quite busy. It is surrounded my multimillion pound developments so it should all come together nicely with the Albert Dock in the middle of it all!

    Beatles Story chief calls for debate on Liverpool Albert Dock's future
    Sep 15 2009
    by Paddy Shennan, Liverpool Echo

    Paddy Shennan hears a call for the city?s Albert Dock to be transformed



    IT has been described as one of the jewels in our crown, but how it should present itself to the people of Merseyside ? and visitors from around the world ? has often been a matter of great debate.

    The stunning Albert Dock, the architectural gem that was famously born again, has always deserved the best . . . it?s just that people can?t always agree on what the best is for this historic collection of buildings.

    And now one of the dock?s main players, Jerry Goldman, managing director of The Beatles Story and director of the Yellow Duckmarine and Big Yellow Boat cruises, is calling for a new discussion about the future direction of the landmark venue.

    Mr Goldman highlights London?s Covent Garden area as being a tourist destination which, he says, unlike Albert Dock, makes the most of itself.

    He explains: ?Albert Dock has bigger potential than Covent Garden. This is a glorious space. Covent Garden has got historic market buildings ? full stop. It hasn?t got a river, dockside and it hasn?t got any open green spaces.

    ?But what they have created at Covent Garden is possibly the number one must-see attraction in London ? everyone goes there, whether they are locals or tourists.?

    He adds: ?Albert Dock, physically, has far more to offer. But in Covent Garden the organisations and businesses involved have combined and organised themselves to make the area as super-attractive as possible to bring people in.

    ?Regarding the Albert Dock, I think it needs council leader Warren Bradley to bring all the parties around the table.

    ?If the council can work with people to build the ECHO arena and Liverpool One then it should also develop our existing treasures, such as the docks, to their full potential.?

    He adds: ?The dock is no longer a prime and lively destination but it CAN become one again ? it can be turned into a place where people can come to be entertained, to have fun and spend a lot of time with their families.

    ?But there needs to be the will to turn Albert Dock and Kings Dock into a lively destination ? and not just when there?s a concert on at the ECHO arena. For it to happen, though, you need the political will.

    ?Albert Dock could, for example, have an indoor market ? at least, initially, at weekends. There could, say, be a food market on Saturdays and an arts and craft market on Sundays.

    ?And LIPA students could come and perform in different performance areas around the dock.

    Continues >>

    Putting large buildings that only attracts a large volume of people at irregular interval is folly. You need a constant 365 attractive vibrant district. Large arenas area mistake. There are better places for these, not littering the dock waterscapes.
