    Gerard, Dave the caretaker reckons Paul didn't hang around for the gig. He said they met up in the Hall across the road and apparently John was impressed with Paul after he tuned his guitar for him.

    Oh well, I'm off to bed. Speak to yer tomorrow night mate

    I don't know if this boat will be floating anytime soon...It's hidden in a Large Warehouse in Kirkdale.

    Sorry if this should be posted somewhere else but couldn't find anywhere. Cant beleive the Albert Dock company are making the people who own the Lightship in the pic move it. Worse still that it is going to Salford Quays! And why isn't the German U Boat from Birkenhead going to the Maritime museum? How much more appropriate an exhibit could you get than a submarine that was involved in the Battle of the Atlantic hunting Liverpool ships. If either of these vessels go elsewhere it will be a disgrace and another ridiculouis loss to the city.

    Default ESSO BRIXHAM

    Here's one from the dim and distant past. Taken in 1957.
    Bunkering tanker. Spent most of our time around Canada and Alexandra docks or out in the River.



    Brings back some old memories of cycling from West Derby Rd to the docks for three monts and praying for deep sea again.

    Hi Dave.
    The Rocks Streets, (Red, White & Grey) ? wonder why Grey and not blue . Born in White Rock St.

    In the time of the Brixham I was living in Harewood Strret (long gone) off Whitefield Road.

    Wow = takes me back a long time.
    I went to it for a short while then on to Butler street then on to Boaler St.

    I also remember the school hall in White Rock next to the school.
    Queued up for Free school meals (Mash, stew with lumps of fat and watery cabbage followed by lumpy custard and stemed dough.) on many a holiday.
    The food done me no harm I am still here.

    Although never wetting her bottom with Mersey water she never-the-less carries the name of her port of registry emblazoned on her stern. Taken in December 2005.

    This ship put gallons of Mersey brine under her keel. She is the Star of India. Built in the Isle of Man she now rest at the maritime museum in San Diego in sunny California.

    Is the Maritime Museum not interested in it ?

    Surely a piece of history like this should be kept on Merseyside whatever the cost.

    I never did pass it. I gave up the sea a few years befor it was put in place.

    Its a unique vessel, not sure if they have shown an interest. Its almost on par with the moving of the gormley statues, we shouldn't let it happen.

    The Mersey Lightship is a very unique vessel. I am not sure but I think it is the last surviving one of its kind.
    I did not have the pleasure (yes it was) to pass this as I gave up the sea in 1957.

    I ask you as a newspaper to use all the power and publicity you have to help to keep this ship in Liverpool. Our city has lost too much of its Maritime history.
    Please act in some way.

    Default Mersey Bar Lightship

    Unsure if we have posted this before on Yo, I recall photos and a thread about the Lightship

    Please vote [leave a message] to save the Mersey lightship restored in the Albert Dock, there are those who want to take it to Manchester, more of our heritage could be lost

    I hope this is in the correct place.

    Many ships on this site have a Liverpool/Merseyside connection

    http://www.photoship.co.uk/

    If you are looking for a ship I think this is the place to start.
