    Default Bins

    What about bins for a thread? Found a nice example in Croxteth Park.

    I peed in one in Sefton Park once, because someone from school told me their mate went on a car at lunch time and It was funny, so I did it on a bin in Sefton Park.

    I was still in my school days.

    This is one of the first things I noticed when I went back to Liverpool a few years ago, that the old concrete bins had been replaced with something a little more functional. They always seemed to be overflowing, and the wind would come along and blow those fish and chip wrappers and the styrofoam trays all over the place (one of my fondest memories of Liverpool). Unfortunately, I don't have any close-up photos of the bins but they do figure in some of my photographs as background subjects. Looking at them now, they seemed a bit on the small side.

    The reason for getting rid of the concrete bins was because of terrorism, they made a lot of shrapnel when blown up with semtex.

    That's also the reason they don't have bins at all in high-risk places like stations nowadays.

    Here's a collectors item...the only old concrete bin I've seen around, so far. This is at the end of the bridge that joins the Albert Dock to the new Kings Dock development. Snap it before it disappears. The address for this road is Keel Wharf.

    Well-spotted, Marky.
    I suppose they're rarer than red telephone boxes.

    Wavertree Technology Park bin.
    This one is unusual because it has a concrete base.
    As examples of old 'street furniture' these bins are very rare nowadays.
    I've seen a total of 6 around. (the others...1 in Keel Wharf near the bridge to Albert Dock, 4 scattered around the car-park by the Customs/Tax office)

    Kev, is it my eyesight or have you tried to clone out a "Walls" image that was originally on the bin? Or possibly it was painted over?
