    Default Building the Anglican Cathedral



    Photographed in 1942. Rushworth's organ builders is in the foreground.



    A wonderful image from my collection of photographs by Edward Chambré Hardman



    Photographed by me in the 1970s from the window of 6 Huskisson Street



    How things were in the environs of the Cathedral. The 'Davy Lou' (David Lewis Hotel) is on the left. All of these buildings, except for the tall bank in the middle distance (also seen on the extreme left in the top photograph) have now gone.


    ADVERTISING






    A very strange 'artist's impression' from 1910 of how the cathedral was predicted to look when completed..



    More like it- another 'imaginary view' but the tower lacks the little pinnacles we have now.



    The radically different design Scott won the competition with.

    Glad you like them. Now I've sussed how to post pics there'll be no stopping me. Here's another beauty from my Chambré Hardman collection...



    Liverpool Anglican Cathedral from South Docks 1950. Note the single-oar rowing boat in the foreground. A lost art?
    I've got quite a lot of the demolition of the huge grain silo on the right which I'll post soon.

    Yes indeed. I used to go and have tea with him and am fortunate enough to own a number of his beautiful original images of Chester and Liverpool.
