    So is Crown Street station one and the same as Edge Hill station? Crown Street itself is a bit further towards the city centre than Tunnel Road where Edge Hill station is situated. Edge Hill has recently been refurbished as an Arts project by a group called Metal. Have you contacted them to see if they've got old photos?

    No, Crown Street Station was different from Edge-Hill Station.

    Crown st station was abandoned in 1836 and turned into a rail goods yard. Before mass usuable portable photography came about.

    The world's first photo - the roof of farm buildings, 1826.



    First photo with a human in it, in Paris in 1838. It took 10 minutes to expose. The man on the bend having his shoes polished at 8 am.

    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?
