    Default Something from the weekend

    As I was in Liverpool for a visit to the workings of the Queensway Tunnel, and the walk through (which I have posted on that thread), I had a wander around with my camera and captured a few pictures:

    Advertisements -------

    We started in the William Duncan, a bog-tiled pub on St John's Lane - I gather this is repro, but very well done:


    I tried to get the same view as in my 1970s picture of the Albert Dock:


    but in those days there were no canal boats:


    ALthough I like some modern architecture, I'm not sure that this is the right place for it:





    and a few from Birkenhead:

    Detailing at the tunnel entrance:


    Hamilton Square Station:


    The Anglican Cathedral across the water:


    The three graces


    and the Albert Dock:


    Modern monstrosities


    and some proper architecture:

    Nice pics there, i wonder if that tiling is repro or original as it seems very well done as you say.
    Cracking day yesterday going through the tunnel and back over on the ferry.
    Can't remember the last time I got on the ferry and went straight back to the Pier Head without hearing "Ferry Across The Mersey" playing out.

    Take time out to read your cameras manual on taking pics in overcast outdoors lighting.

    I doubt it,that architecture would cost an arm and a leg to reproduce in todays money...I suspect it was bufferd and steam cleaned to its original state..much cheaper.
