    Default A Liverpool Gallery..

    Hello everyone. I've only just discovered this splendid website and forum and this is only my second posting. I run an online history of, and guide to, this, my adopted home of Chester but also have a Liverpool gallery up there too- featuring a few of my photographs of the city from 1980 to the present- which you may care to mooch through sometime-

    Welcome to Liverpool!

    Default riots photographs...

    I have quite a few more of the devastation left behind which I've been meaning to get online for ages. Your kind comments should act as an incentive to get it done!
    i was there throughout the 'action', being one of the proprietors of a shop in Lodge Lane at the time and we stayed with the place to ensure its safety- not to mention that of the bedridden old lady in the flat above. Our place was left alone but my memories of the things I saw during those nights don't bear thinking about sometimes. Buildings on each side of us collapsing into the street in flames, stolen vehicles passing by, laden with swag...
    I got 'set up' in Granby Street on the way home after the final night of trouble- I spotted a miniature bottle of brandy lying amid a sea of broken glass, picked it up- and promptly 'had my collar felt' by a copper waiting just around the corner. I spent the next couple of days in a cell but was 'lucky' to end up with a 50 fine for 'theft'...
    I'm sorry I didn't have a camera to record it all but was nervous about being taken for poice or whatever... As I said, I did wander round the area over the following days capturing the mess though. Sadly, the majority of these pictures- and hundreds of others- were lost during a house move but a few survive, which I'll try to get online when I can.
