    What a great picture!

    What is that hanging from the warehouse?

    An early version of a lift?

    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?

    Lots of great water colours of that area in two books by Kay Parrott, ex of the LRO. The works of Herdman and Tankard.
