    Default Salthouse Dock - Building - 1955

    As you entered Salthouse Dock from the Dock Road - crossed over the bridge (Salthouse Dock on your right) and about 100yds on your left was a 3 storey building - the top floor was Huson and Hardwicke Laboratories, Ground floor and 2nd floor I think were Custom and Excise and a small medical centre.
    Question is does anybody have photos of the building or know the name of it? My first job was on the top floor!!!

    Thanks in advance- Doc

    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?

    Do you recall the 1700s Brindley warehouses?

    No, not by name - numerous warehouses as you know (think the one opposite was a gin/spirits warehouse??) - sorry not at all knowledgable about the area/docks

    Remember being stopped and searched many times in the dock areas and also when exiting by the dock? police
