    Kev.
    Do you happen to have the dates for these?
    I'm guessing 1850s?

    I'm also trying to spot buildings that are still standing.
    Not many.
    The Collegiate.
    Queens Arms, Richmond Street.

    The park in Shaw Street didn't last long.

    Excellent series Kev.....even continuing themes from earlier threads [Houghton St].

    As a public sculpture series.....I think these views should be re-introduced into the city from the vantage point they were originally drawn/ painted.

    Upper Dawson Street opened out on to the Poultry market, at the side of St John's Market off Market Street. IOW's the lady standing on the corner in the illustration is standing in the same place as the lady in the photo. The views however look in different directions.

    Excellent series Kev, thanks for posting.


    "SL053 - Lord Molyneux' Residence Sweeting Street. No date." Sorry just one correction. This residence was on the north side of Lord street? "Sweeting street" is mentioned twice above.

    Is this the same place, found on Flickr

    Sweeting Street, Liverpool, UK. This cobbled alley off Dale Street, once known as 'Elbow Lane', featured in a Hovis TV advert in 2008.

    Sweeting Street, Liverpool

    The map appears to show the street is close to the Town Hall.
