    Default Liverpool International Exhibition - 1886

    The International Exhibition of Navigation, Commerce and Industry in Liverpool, England - was opened by Queen Victoria on 11 May 1886.

    FTL Deisign website [link below] has published many new images of Liverpool which were [I think] commissioned for the exhibition at the time, and were featured in an album sponsored by Lewis's department store.

    This looks like a drawing. But it shows the Princes Dock accumulator Tower. This was demolished after WW2 to make way for the new locks.

    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 Waterways. There's a grainy photograph of the Princes Dock Accumulator Tower taken from a screenshot of the Lumiere brothers film from 1897 at http://www.liverpoolwiki.org/Liverpool's_destroyed_landmarks
