    Oh dear, Kev. These are the pictures I took in 2004 and it is sad to see the same buildings still on the danger list. Landmarks in danger.

    If the council stopped arsing about with Superlamb banana's and spent the money on our Heritage, then maybe we'd be within a fighting chance of saving some of our buildings!

    Totally agree with Cad, there spending money on crap rather than save what makes Liverpool look nice.

    Even the non city centre areas are looking terrible, most of the housing areas are not colourful and are souless council estate like houses. I get lost up them too because every house looks like the same and too many dead ends.

    Plus when I went past Mann Island they had a photo of what some of the new buildings will look like and one looks like a big black box that will block the view of the graces from the Albert dock.



    So Instead of the graces In that shot, I'll end up with a big black box building blocking the view.

    Are the council high to approve such garbage.

    Isn't the old St Andrews church building being replaced with some University building?

    I like photographing the grave yard but that white block building In the back ground makes It annoying.

    Where are they getting these souless architectures from? Most of the people behind the events for capital of vulture aren't even from Liverpool.

    Understand nothing lasts forever like we have to, but can't they replace them with something colourful and nice to look at least? All I see Is plastic looking boxes and the odd good building making me go outside of Liverpool to travel around recently.

    I see that the 2011 English heritage 'At Risk' register has been published. (North West)...
