The Rebuilding of Liverpool

Old 27 Aug 07

Tomorrow is Liverpool’s 800th birthday. Today it currently looks a little like its been bombed. I wanted this shot to have a post-war feel to it. Its not often you get the chance to document Liverpool after WWII. Tomorrow is going to be one insane day. I have shots that I absolutely must get for the 800 project. I have shots that I absolutely must get to document the 800th birthday too. I’ll never see the 900th. Its going to be a very long, tiring day. The weather is meant to be sunny with clouds, in theory perfect. Tomorrow would be a full days work without one of the other events. I need another me but then that would be splitting the memories and I’d prefer to do it all.

    Wonderfull dramatic shot. I guess the Liverpool???s 800th birthday will not be held on this particular site.

    You want to see Bradford if you think that looks depressing Pete. They knocked a chunk of the city centre down about 2 years ago and left piles of rubble…
    As to when they are going to do anything about it is anybody’s guess.
    Maybe, when you come by I will give you a quick tour of the place… in fact, if you are up for it, it would be my pleasure!
    Nice pic though :)

    hey Pete,

    Hope it all went well. Love the pic, so atmospheric, bet it looks just like the Paradise Street area did after the bombs dropped.
