I think this site is already in this thread, near the front somewhere.

http://inacityliving.piczo.com/?g=27070738&cr=7


The same photo's are in the series of 4 books - In a City Living.



There's also other books currently on sale - The Lost tribe of Everton.
http://www.losttribeofeverton.co.uk/everton-photographs.php


A lot of the above covers the Shaw st-Everton Brow-Netherfield Rd areas.  Plus the likes of Canterbury St.Salisbury St etc, which are just behind Shaw st, and is the area covered on the maps/diarama in the new museum.

Going from open fields, to sweeps of terraced streets, onto the 60s tennaments, and to the modern 90s-2000s houses that now occupy the same sites.

the '66 team allegedly the day before beating Everton 5-1..from an ale advert. Don't recognise the pub. Both these pics from Warwick modern records library
That is a stunning pics mate.
Tsar, that looks like the canal in the background so maybe The Blue Anchor near Aintree?
Is the canal that wide there? I'm guessing it may be out of town, towards Warrington somewhere.

^^^ Excellent photo.


I went straight into the photo, without reading the post on 'yo', and for a couple of minutes I was trying to place the building  ::)

Seeing the spire of St.Luke's in the background, I thought if was either mount pleasant, near the YMCA or Hardman/Leece st.   But I couldn't just quite pin it down.




....untill the penny dropped.

The reason i didn't recognise then building, is because I've never seen a picture of the old Philharmonic from that angle.   Seen some of the front, but never from that vantage point.



Crackin' photo though.  Cheers fella.

Chambre Hardman Liverpool photos recreated for FACT

The contrast between the two pictures could not be stronger, although the location and viewpoint is exactly the same.

In one frame a grimy, smog-ridden street teeming with traffic where horse drawn vehicles lurch between crowds of dockers.

In the next, modern glass fronted buildings line up down a six lane dual carriageway, the hustle and bustle replaced by ordered traffic and pedestrians.

The images are part of an exhibition placing photographs by teenagers in 2011 next to those taken by renowned 20th century city photographer Edward Chambre Hardman.

The display, at Liverpool's Foundation for Art and Creative Technology (FACT), grew out of a visit by a group of teenagers to the photographer's old Rodney Street home, now a National Trust property.

'Completely different city'

Clare Molyneux, artistic director of West Derby based Open The Door Theatre in Education said: "When we got into the exhibition of Mr Hardman's photographs it was frustrating for me because the young people didn't recognise any of the locations.

"They couldn't recognise their own city.

"On the way back I drove them to the places just to show them and they couldn't believe it.

"The photographs showed a completely different city to the one they knew."

From the mid 1920s to the mid 1960s Edward Chambre Hardman, a portrait photographer based in Liverpool city centre, spent his spare time taking landscape pictures of the city and it's surrounding area.

When he died in 1988 his house and studio, which had changed little since the 1950s, was taken over by the E. Chambré Hardman Trust.

It later transferred to the National Trust, opening as a museum dedicated to his life's work in 2004.

The FACT exhibition contrasts Chambre Hardman's photographs with those of modern Liverpool taken by local teenagers.

The project, funded by £25,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund, was designed to help young people learn more about their own heritage.

Detective work

Liverpool photographer Steve Judson took 100 young people from youth clubs across the city to the sites of Hardman's photographs.

To take a photograph showing the same location the group had to first pinpoint the exact spot where Chambre Hardman had stood.

"We went to the original locations where Chambre Hardman had taken the pictures and we took the same pictures, from the same angle and the same vantage point," Ms Molyneux explained.

"It was so difficult to find some places because they are so different.

"We were left with the task of where to start."

The first challenge was to match Chambre Hardman's black and white prints to city locations when so many buildings have been demolished or renovated in the intervening years.

Large missing structures like The Overhead Railway, known locally as the docker's umbrella, would give some clue, while in other pictures the group had to carry out further detective work.

"On the dock road the docker's umbrella has gone, the tram lines have gone and the warehouses have gone," Ms Molyneux explained.

"On one image of the Canning Dock it was just a single lamppost on an Ordnance Survey map which gave us the clue as to where Mr Hardman had taken the photo.

"We had to work together to find the places, the group has learnt so much.

"Not only have they learnt about the history of Liverpool but they've also developed digital photography and editing skills.

"The confidence that young people get from being involved in an arts project like this is amazing."

The exhibition Hardman's Liverpool: Then and Now is at FACT, Liverpool until 22 September.

Can't be the Blue Anchor, as there's no buildings behind it.


There can't bee too many pubs right on a canal in Liverpool (presuming it is Liverpool), with a built up industrial area the other side of the canal.



Taking the rout of the Leeds/Liverpool canal, it's more likely to be a pub in the Litherland-Bootle-Vauxhall area of Liverpool

i think the red lion boozer down by linacre road way used to back onto the canal years ago before the roundabout /flyover / bypass whatever it is was built but i dont think that is the boozer in the photo, i reckon it`s one of the boozers out in the sticks, lydiate or scarisbrick, somewhere like that.
the running horses / saracens head/ the farmers arms somewhere like that i reckon.

Just spent the last few days going through this thread and the links, wonderful thread.

Just curious if anyone has access or links to any images of any CSA (Confederate States of America) ships built in and around Liverpool during the 1860's, or even that just happened to be in that area?

Edit***

Mainly the CSS Shenandoah?  Also, read somewhere earlier that one of the masts of the SS Great Eastern was outside the Kop, is this true??

Editx2***  Nevermind about the mast, just found out it's the flagpole outside the Kop End.  :D  Never knew that.

Yeah the ship was left in the Mersey for awhile as a floating advertising hoarding.  Saw it on that "Great Britons" when Jeremy Clarkson did Brunel.

The 65 FA Cup homecoming?
Taken from the home page.


Today’s two images were, again, taken by Pat Weekes, who ran the memorable Merseyside Collectors’ Centre in Temple Court. The first image is of happy Liverpool supporters returning from the great FA Cup celebration held at the Town Hall. The soot-blackened buildings are very much in evidence. With the exception of Watson Prickard’s building on the corner of North John Street, all the buildings have survived and look much better for having been cleaned. The second photograph is of another street that remarkably has survived largely unchanged. Hackins Hey has no great architecture but it has the atmosphere of an older, lost Liverpool.
