    Default Brunswick station frontage.

    Just wondered, what these various bits of Brunswick station were for? I can figure that the large trough was for watering horses,but what are the small bowls for? And also,the 2 small rooms either side,with the gates on....toilets? (couldn't see any sign of plumbing though!)

    These relics are neither from the Overhead or the old Brunswick Station, which was a lot further North of the picture.

    The building in the photograph is the base of a bridge that stretched from the dock road and up over the CLC sidings and up on to Grafton Street. It allowed access to the docks from the Dingle and Grafton Street.

    You can see it on the map in this link, its the road over the railway sidings at the SW end of Wellington Road.

    There is an aerial view in this map, you can see the ramps up to the bridge bottom left.

    The water troughs etc were on street level below the ramps.

    That is not the bridge.That is the "Iron bridge"

    It is Horsfall St, shown here on the map:

    The road on both side rose on ramps then a "T" and over the tracks to Grafton St. A part of the road is still on one of the ramps.

    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?
