    Kev.
    Do you happen to have the dates for these?
    I'm guessing 1850s?

    I'm also trying to spot buildings that are still standing.
    Not many.
    The Collegiate.
    Queens Arms, Richmond Street.

    The park in Shaw Street didn't last long.

    Excellent series Kev.....even continuing themes from earlier threads [Houghton St].

    As a public sculpture series.....I think these views should be re-introduced into the city from the vantage point they were originally drawn/ painted.

    Bravo for posting these scenes, Kev.

    I grew up in Liverpool as a student of local history, very familiar with this artwork.
