Old Jetty Riverfront
Sure is *grin* it could have been the new departure lounge! "perish the thought of it"!
way cewl, your pictures of the new booking hall are brilliant, *sighs* one day!
u can actually see the colour too.
hmmm...wonders..doctor who? naah okay booking office of mersey travel it is then! *g* funny how popular this image is.Or maybe cruise liner departure lounge?
Nice photos guys (and girl ).
While we're on the subject, here's something a little different. The old jetty actually has a lower level. I didn't know about this until excavation work for the foundations of the new Alexandra Tower revealed a back-filled tunnel. This would have given dockers access to the lower level from the Prince's Half-tide dockside.
Needless to say, it was pretty quickly filled-in again, but I managed to sneak in and get these pictures. I think it was late 2004 or early 2005. The wooden floor-boarding and barriers on the left suggests it was used to load cargo onto the ships.
Lovely photographs, way cewl the new ferry terminal loading bay or should it be cruise liner departure platform?
Why Is It called New Booking Hall?
Gididi Gididi Goo.
snap, gerard and kev, smashing pictures and interesting story on the subject.
full marks folks.
Well done snappel for getting in there-I bet nobody would know there was a lower level to it! I did see a guy fishing off the end of that jetty once. Rather him than me walking along that rotten wood...
