    The architect for this building was richard seifert, and in my opinion was a brilliant design, as pointed out just a bit shabby due to lack of maintenance. It was even surveyed and told there was nothing wrong with the building and complied with all modern day health & safety issues, there was also a campaign to save it but didn't succeed. As usual the council take the easiest option by demolishing it....terrible!

    Another Peter Leeson shot. He actually left the architects planning dept disgusted at the policies of demolishing old buildings and made the film 'us and them' as a protest about the people of Scottie Road against the town planners.

    Fine photograph, Joe. Not just because it shows the demise of Concourse House but because of the atmospheric shots of the other Liverpool landmarks beyond it.

    Good work.

    Who gets the land ? And if they build what goes there? I would like to see a giant statue of Maggie May who they say will never walk down that street any more

    She could be gazing lavisciously down the street toward the famed statue of Liverpool Resurgent. . . . Say no more.

    It was originally Park Lane, John Lennon sang that on the Let It Be album.

    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?
