Prince's Landing Stage


For many years there was a landing stage at Liverpool's Pier Head that saw many thiosnads of people leave these shore on Transatlantic Liners, long distance ferries and boats to all parts of the world. Today only the rump of the stage is left, with danger notices all over it. It was a massive structure almost half a mile long with offices and shelters on it and Riverside Station adjacent to it. The small structure is the last remaing ticket collector's kiosk, which may also be seen here.

Lovely stuff Les- a superb record of the pier's last days.
I almost want to come back to Liverpool for a nostalgic look around. Almost... but I shall resist the temptation! wink
Les Auld: Don't resist too hard David, there is plenty of interesting things to photograph down here. Thanks for the comment.
Unlike David I'm determined to have a look round Liverpool! Great shot Les
Les Auld: There are some great events in the near future Bill if you can make them, thanks for the comment.

Interesting treatment, Les. It looks like the photograph has been left to the mercy of the elements! Love the shot BTW. I've never been to Liverpool - I think it's the only major city in the UK that I haven't visited!

Les Auld: Found in a crack in the wall when they excavated for the new landing stage, or is it just imagination and photoshop. Thanks for the comment Ingrid, you should visit us sometime, great place to take pictures.
I really like this ... but I'm uncertain about the need for the textured layer.

Les Auld: Some you win, some you don't, thanks for the comment Richard.
To think I've walked along this on the way to and from the Isle of Man many years ago. Soon, I presume, it will be no more.
Les Auld: Quite possibly Brian, the Manx boats still go from the landing stage, Thanks for the comment.

Love your OLD processing on this Les. I would love to see it as it and Liverpool.
Les Auld: Thanks Aussie, glad you like it.
