Gulley, I don't suppose you can approximate the date of this photo from the tops of these cars in the left foreground can you?  ;)

 ;D

The main line electrification gantry and catenary system is in place in this photo (being used as a backdrop) in that RMWeb article..



Since electrification was completed by '62, I'm guessing that the other photo you've put up is likely from around after that, probably mid 60's. Not sure what the cars are, that looks suspiciously like the roofline of a Rover P5 at the front though I don't think that will help us much.

As the guy in the article says, it's likely taken shortly before demolition though I can't find anything to say exactly when that was.

I can remember watching engines get turned on that turntable.

What a tremendous thread. Nostalgia is a funny thing isn't it? I find I can only take a certain number of images and then it becomes too painful. And the truth is I don't know Liverpool at all well, having never lived there. Even so, the ones taken in the 1970s, catapult me right back there and just for a moment it feels like today.

Do yourself a favour mate and look at the thread from the beginning, some absolute pearlers.  Just wish there was an interactive map where you could click on the street and pictures through time would be shown.

I can't get over that picture of the Kemlyn from 1989, looks from a bygone era (maybe it is!) but I had a season ticket in there at that time.

A few interesting ones in the Echo here



Goree warehouses 1874, the top of St Nicks steeple is just visible top right over the roofline for modern day bearings.

This book looks like it could be interesting, I might suggest it to my kids as a Christmas present for Dad....

Great picture that though a tad clipped...taken in 1895



From those columns on top I think that's the Dandy Pat Byrne fountain, see here in Scotland Place, L3
As was....



and then as dumped on a tip by the Philistines employed by the council...



and here now fortunately the base rescued and placed at the rear of St Anthony's RC church Scotland Road, L3 ....




Interesting site that Liverpoool Monuments.... http://www.liverpoolmonuments.co.uk/ and well worth a browse around.

Similar happened with the beacon at your end of the Queensway tunnel, just dumped.  Ironic that there's been calls from Liverpool to have Birkenhead's.

https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2016/nov/27/photographs-of-historic-england-challenge-downton-abbey-myth

Ironically - as our two cities are so massively diametrically football-wise opposed - pretty bloody similar to working class Manchester. Two hugely powerful and influential cities of the old British Empire ( excuse me whilst I clear my throat after having uttered those last two words) I think there could just be a Victorian political and a societal reason for this lack of longevity don't you?

Ironically - even though our two great cities are so massively diametrically football-wise opposed - this is pretty bloody similar to working class Manchester. Two hugely powerful and influential cities of the old British Empire ( excuse me whilst I clear my throat after having uttered those last two words) I think there could just be a Victorian political and a societal reason for this lack of longevity in our youth don't you? If you are struggling to come up with what that might be, here's a clue. It's tantamount to expressing the Tory ascendancy political view of "we'd best suppress the longevity of these breeding rabbits in both bloody places else we'll be in serious political trouble in the future".

Looks to me like the words 'You'll Never Walk Alone" are printed on the banner on the right. Which is odd because Celtic supporters invented the song ten years later in 1975.
