Monday morning dawns, grey and wet but still, off early to catch the Mersey Ferry and travel out to the the mouth of the river Mersey to photograph the arrival of the Queen Victoria on her first visit to Liverpool. Rained all the time so the photographs were not of the best but still a record of the event.
This was one of the few occasions that all three ferries were out on the river at the same time, The picture was taken from the Royal Daffodil.
The Queen Victoria is Cunard's second largest cruise liner and was paying a day visit to Liverpool and also celebrating the 170th birthday of Cunard. The first Cunard ship left Liverpool for New York in 1840, and from there a great British company grew, although now I suspect being British is probably not the case.
