    I was on the way to photograph somewhere else when I saw it. there was someone else taking pics of it. Wonder if it's someone from here?

    there were quite a few around Wavertree/Edge Hill.

    A lot are only showing up now that buildings around them have been demolished.

    They're shown on the OS maps.

    I've got a couple of early 20th century localised OS maps. must have a proper look.

    I've looked in the tunnel areas but can't make them out. how are they marked Phil? by a letter , number or tiny circle?

    There used to be a 'Star Wars' mural painted on the Grenville Street vent. I haven't seen it since apartments were built, though.
