photoblog image Princes Dock

Princes Dock

Many millions of pounds are being spent on the renovation of the dock areas in Liverpool, this is just part of it. Princes Dock just north of the Pier Head has had new office buidlings and landscaping on it. This area used to be a big railway station where the boat trains would bring the passengers down to meet he ocean going kliners on the transatlantic route, now all gone.

Just behind me the new Cuise Liner facility is being built, hopefuly to open in September with the visit of the Queen Elisabeth II.

Lots to see in this pic, Lec. That "pincer" walkway really fascinates me!
Les Auld: Thanks Ginnie, the bridge across the dock reminds me of the skeleton of a whale.
Nice management of lights and colors !
Les Auld: Took a little post processing, thanks for the comment.
My grandmother lived opposite Princes Dock gate, 35 Bath Street, and the dock was one of our favourite playgrounds. Alas, neither her house nor the magnificent granite dock gates are there any more. Although Franks Cafe 200 yds further along the road is still there, amazingly.

Interesting shot Les.
Les Auld: Appreciate the comment Alistair, the dock walls look great now they have been cleaned up, although I don't remember Franks cafe, I'll have to have another look when I'm next down there.
