Work in Progress


180 dgrees from yesterday's image is the Museum of Liverpool, now taking shape at the Pier Head. The cladding of Jura Limestone and glass is being fitted before the internal work is done. It is scheduled to open in 2011 and will provide a new iconic waterfront building for Liverpool. The view from these end windows should be grand when it opens.

The extension to the Leeds Liverpool Canal passes in front of and underneath the museum, i will be interesting to see the canal boats passing through.

It's huge!

What do you think of this building?
Les Auld: It is growing on me Ellie but I reserve final judgment until it is completed, thanks for the comment.
Nothing wrong with your good picture of this building and its surroundings Les, it's just that I'm not sure if I like the building.
Les Auld: Each to their own Brian, at least it makes a reasonable photographic study.

Excellent picture. The main part showing reminds me of a stage, but in this case lifted up.
Les Auld: I can see wht you mean Louis, thanks for the comment.
