Boom. At 8am on a wet Sunday morning the iconic cranes at Birkenhead docks were demolished. They haven’t been used in 25 years due to asbestos. They’ve been there for 50 years. I’ve uploaded a slideshow to Flickr that shows the explosion as it happened. It was really something to see. There is also a video of it on Youtube. Its a bit sad to see them go as they’ve been there all my life. I remember seeing them when I was 10 using a film SLR on a photography day out. I remember going down there when I got my Canon A70 to take photos. Shame really, but amazing to see.
