    This is another plate from the Francis Frith Collection. The scene is so well known that it needs no mention but nevertheless it looks wonderful,

    Great pic Brian. I have seen a b&w one of the same view but that's a good un'. The large tower behind the County Sessions House belongs to Christ Church on Hunter Street which also contained a grave yard. This stood to the rear of Gianelli's chippy.

    Here are two more from the Frith collection.
    The first is the Town Hall ,taken in 1895 and then Dale Street, taken in the same year.
    For those of you who might be wondering about the Frith Collection and its aims let tell you what I know.
    Francis Frith was a Liverpudlian ,a wholesale grocer by trade,he sold the business for an emormous sum which enabled him to travel widely.In the late 19th century he set up a photography business and began the task of making photographic records of several countries. His first major endeavour was to photograph Great Britain, a work that took him 30 years to complete. By 1890 Frith had the greatest specialist photographic publishing business in the world. I hope you enjoy the few I will post on here,
    BrianD
