    The bus is the no.12 to Seacombe passing Buchanan's Flour Mills.

    It wasn't actually a mill, it was a huge silo at Brunswick Dock built in the mid 1930s demolished late 80s. It dominated the south end docks and area around it.

    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?

    They are very nice, indeed.
    It's great that we've got the photographer showing us his 50-odd y/o photos.
