    One side of Falkner Square, Liverpool L8. Despite its L8 post code tag, this area is not in Toxteth.

    A bird of prey would be better.A falconer with a hawk would soon clear the pidgeons and gulls.

    Greenbank Park, Mossley Hill, Liverpool. It's not widely known that this park falls within the boundaries of the ancient Toxteth Park

    Wonderous Place.

    St. Nics built on the site of St. Mary del quay, a place of worship since at least the mid 13th century. Tower Building (1908) The Sandcastle and the Atlantic Tower Hotel (now the Thistle) hail from the 1970s whilst the ultra modern Beetham and Unity Towers rise behind.

    The building on the right:
    I was at a wedding at St Nic's a couple of years ago and when we were having pictures taken in the grounds another guest told me the external cladding of that building on the right is white terracotta - imported from Spain. News to me - thought it was always red.

    Great picture

    Thanks folks. It was a late afternoon shot Shoney.

    Tower Buildings was full of Shipping lines agencies in the early/mid 1980s and even had a carpet shop on the ground floor. Now they are apartments - surprise, surprise.

    St. Nic's gardens is a little haven and if you look up at the back of Mersey Chambers (citywards) which is to the rear of Covent Garden, you'll see another Liver Bird perched on top.

    Tinted glass and steel now seems to be 'in thing' with architects, there's only so much you can do with it so to be individualistic, they make all these weird and wonderful shapes like the 'Hilton?' ship shaped building on the strand, the sloping tops of Unity and Beetham and round buildings like on Hatton Gardens that seem totally out of context with the surrounding areas.

    Cost is a factor too, you just won't get the great stone victoriana of the civic buildings as they were largely built by benefactors or as HQ's for organisations that wanted to show pride and wealth. They're certainly packing these new buildings in where they can, Old Hall street is like the time machine on the East side, knocked a load down and built a load up in no time.

    St. Nicks really stands out from the lighter buildings, great shot.

    Hi Ged

    Fantastic photograph, Ged! St. Nick's has to be one of the most photogenic of Liverpool locations. Excellent work, mate!
