The Black & White Picture Place

Photographs of Liverpool

Early Days of the Albert Dock Restoration 1983

The former dock master's office on the right is now Granada TV's news studios and the building with the tall chimney, once James Newton's ship's chandlers and sailmakers, is now a bar and restaurant. Behind this is the newly-built Merseyside Police HQ. In the background rises the massive bulk of the Anglical Cathedral- more pictures of which may be seen elsewhere in our Liverpool gallery.

Compare the devastation above with how the place looked sixty years earlier -and the same scene a quarter of a century later, in 2006
