Resurgam Replica Submarine, Woodside.
A plaque states:
Full size replica
Built by the trainees of
Rathbone C.I. (AMARC Birkenhead)
Resurgam, a steam-powered submarine, was designed and patented by Manchester clergyman Reverend George William Garrett. The submarine was built in 1879 by Cochran & Co in Birkenhead for the then cost of £1500.
That same wreck site cited above, by the way, has information on the wreck of the Mary Rose and other interesting wrecks around the UK -- worth a look-see.
The original Resurgam is in good condition and there was talk of raising her. She sunk while being towed to Portsmouth from Birkenhead. The crew got out as they had trouble with the tow line. The hatches could not be secured from outside the sub, only inside, so waves went over the sub and down the hatch sinking the brand new sub. It was the first modern submarine.
Does the replica actually work?
The new Amsterdam at Liverpool?

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?

Great pic Lindy, got one of that myself and the back. I wonder what some other English cities except London would find to put on their buses?
ps. I see the Liver was voted most iconic N.W. building (somehow Morrisey pipped the Beatles and Oasis in the music catergory )
Updated weekly with old and new pics.
