    Great pics, even I don't remember when Liverpool looked like that and I'm probably the oldest old fart here, even older than Bobbymac.

    It's just to the right of that last pic.
    The mounting steps are opposite the church next to the Bluecoat.

    I was confused by the Aigburth Vale pic. it is actually Aigburth Road, Aigburth Vale would be to the right of the pic. All is clear now Ta.

    Interesting photos. Sorry if this link has already been mentioned. It's the Council's online photo archive. Type "jpg" in the Any text search box and it will bring up all the photos.

    That Liverpool site is fantastic, the only problem I found was that the link to enlarge them doesn't work.

    Liverpool in the 1980s.
    I'm a fan of Nancy's photos. She studied for a year in Liverpool in the early 80s, before returning to the US. She certainly got around! In my opinion they are the best set of 1980s Liverpool photos to be found anywhere on the internet. They are THAT good!

    I have commented on a couple of her photos, one of a very young Farm and the photo of the People's Festival

    Here's a question about the Dingle Knot Hole: It looks very much like the outcrop of rock that is currently opposite the old Garden Festival site. There is a roundabout there and the Riverside Drive runs past too. Just to the left would be the Britania Pub. Its almost like its taken from the Garden Festival itself by the old dome.

    Many of these photos often attached to thin card were reference prints not actual prints and were used by the City Engineers Photographic unit (later Reprographic Section) to show to customers.

    Many of them were quick contact prints from the glass plates and some were so old that we mounted them on card and then filed them. The scruffy handwriting seen on some of them is mine.

    When the section was closed the 200,000 strong photo archive with photos from 1890s to nearly the 1990s and with negatives ranging from glass plates to more modern negatives and of all sizes was passed on to the Library.

    Often these are reproduced and sold on. The original glass plates although deteriorating produced prints of a far higher quality.

    Even though it's now part of the pub, are they still separate rooms.

    6 feet wide!

    Perfect for most of ya and you have a pub next door.

    Default 80's Liverpool

    Hi guys!
    New to this forum, so thought I'd start by posting a link on here to an excellent set of photos, taken by a young lady who lives in Seattle. I believe she lived in Lpool only for a year during the 80's, but captured our city wonderfully & just how I remember it, growing up as a child. Have a gander..!
