    Default UNSEEN AND UNPUBLISHED - LIVER STREET - 1939 AND 1973

    This is the same scene 34 years apart. It is Liver Street seen from Salthouse Lane with Mersey Street running off to the left towards the Customs House on Canning Place and Hurst Street running off to the right to meet Wapping. In the 1973 scene, taken on 19th November, the pub is the Woodman, the Little Woodman pub was on Hill Street, a little further South. Pics are from the LRO. Please use the scrollbar at the bottom of the post to see the full photo or click on it.

    Nice one Ged, cracking photos.
    I wouldn't give Satan a snowball's chance in hell against a woman's ego, man. He'd rule the Earth for a day. A week later we'd see Satan out cuttin' the lawn.

    [joke] What did the zero say to the eight?*

    Is this just a mismatch between large format shots and digital? (lovely pic Ged)

    *Nice belt.

    The newer picture does seem to have a belted appearance, does it not? With the top storey spilling out.

    Just saying.

    It looks to me to be a 'fault' in the lens. The focal point is on the pub sign and all around, the image bends more and more. I don't know quite why this is. I do recall that you are given a crude choice of focal lengths on some cameras (let's face it, on the cheaper/every day type). Did you check to see that the camera was set to take pictures at distance? On the other hand this does give the shot more of a 'Dickensian' look. Like the abode of Fagin (I do hope I have spelled that right, for obvious reasons) in the B&W movie.

    P.S.
    Silly me. I have just noticed the cars in the newer shot. It aint that new. The problems of yesteryear need not detain us, keep up the good work.
