    Thumbs up Moorish Arch Edge Hill Liverpool Not So Beautiful and Ornate Anymore

    Took these pictures today [2nd February 2010]. I was quite excited.

    Final Attachment: I have tried to give an impression of what the arch looked like when it was newly built.

    It had to be demolished to widen the cutting when the 1846 secondary tunnel was bored into the Crown Street Goods yard. It was a part of the bridge which is still there. Well it is not a bridge as it is still a solid rock arch left in place.

    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?

    Very interesting, Kev. I am having trouble though relating what you photographed with what the Moorish Arch looked like when it was built. Could you guide us?

    Well done getting those pics Kev.

    Like Chris, I'm a bit lost too. The very bottom left picture - is that part of the reamins of the arch ?
