    marie,
    Post #98 on this thread.

    In 1784 a local businessman....'John Mann' died....So they renamed a small island (Previously known as 'Mersey Island')......'Mann Island'.....He was an 'Oil-Stone' Dealer.

    Great pic but (ahem) not very accurate history! Isn't that where the Crosville buses used to terminate? H1, H2, H5 etc?

    And weren't the 4 & 5 mostly seen in South Castle Street?

    As for the 80A

    @ Gerard. I understand your concern about copyright and being ripped off but your name in the top left hand corner would suffice. People don't steal images by accident. They know what they are doing. All you need to do is prove that the original image is yours which isn't very difficult if the image was digitally encoded. IMO your overuse of your name in the above pictures spoils them. You used to be happy with one or two imprints of your name on each photo. What has changed?

    I agree. Chances are if someone steals them it'll be a local publication or newspaper, and someone will spot them. In which case you can invoice them accordingly. Although you're not taking photos as a profession, a cheque for a few hundred quid is some new camera kit, a weekend away or some nice meals out.

    As I've said before, I use a small watermark. I've had photos stolen once that I know about and I settled with the offending publication for what I see as a fairly significant amount of money.

    On this note, if anybody wants any advice on how to obtain payment for stolen photos, I'd be glad to help. I've helped other people get what they've deserved in the past, and nine times out of ten the same methods work. Naturally I wouldn't expect any payment for helping out - I just don't like seeing people's hard work being exploited by others.

    I suppose the first hurdle is finding out if any of your pictures are stolen(?).

    That is NOT going to happen to my pictures..
    1 watermark can be removed..Milions of them cant...I have'nt got the money to chase these things through courts for years with denials and "I took that picture and you cant prove I never" lark..

    If somebody right clicks my photo isnt all the exif data or whatever its called lost ??.Whats to stop any argument going through the courts for years.

    And Im not Interested in suing people either..Sorry if it spoils the pics..Ive seen what happened to my mates pictures and I'll say it again..Its not going to happen to mine..


    I'd gladly let people use my pictures if they ask..
    But not everybody has the good manners to ask do they..or give credit..Jobo will confirm that.
    I Dont want any of my pictures or Joe Devines ending up on another Liverpool site and thats the only reason I watermark them..
    And I'm on about Scottie Press..They had their chance and could have had millions of the best Liverpool/Scottie Rd photos ever..
    I learnt my Lesson on Scottie Press I can tell yer...And it wont happen again..Running around giving Scottie Rd photo Dvds away for nothing all over Scottie Rd to Pensioners and so called friends and then getting no support when it all went off...Not that I mind..I'll argue all day me..But I reckon 500 on to 1 is just a bit too much..even for me.
    Starting to understand what you mean, Gerard. Keeping taking those dandy pictures, with or without watermarks, all the same.

    As for the 80A
    Depends on the year, the 4,5 were Sth Castle Sreet mostly.

    However some journeys were operated from Mann Island as confirmed by the 1972 and 1976 timetables.

    Other routes using Mann island and Georges Dock Way were 73,73a,79a, 79e, 16, 1, 76 and all the Crosville H routes.

    On our running day last year we were running 4,5 and 73 from Mann Island presumably some little IMP had been messing with the rear numbers.

    Hope you are all going to join us on our next Running day on 9th Sept.

    kind regards

    Rob

    The frontage of Voss Motors building looks safe for a bit longer. I thought all of Mann Island was scheduled for demolition, to make way for those modern 'black granite' buildings. They must be saving Voss Motors until last.

    Re: Voss Motors (Mercedes building)
    I noticed 'Demolition in Progress' signs and a wire fence have been erected around the front...probably only a couple of weeks left to get photos.

    Thanks Marky.
    I took my photos a couple of weeks ago.

    Tip to photographers:
    The higher windows make great mirrors to reflect parts of The Three Graces.

    It's the pump house for the Mersey Railway.
