    1955? The Brunswick grain silo is still being built - so 1935. Not one ship is in sight either. Strange sight in those days. What wonderful aromatic smells came from that place!!

    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?

    Oops. Slip of the keyboard. Sorted.

    As for the smells, I often used to pedal down the Dock Road into Town from Crosby as a kid and well remember the evocative pongs along there. For some reason, whenever I smell dog biscuits, it takes me right back there. That would have been Spiller's I suppose...
