Liverpool before the canal link

Old 29 Oct 08

This isn’t really a great photo, and I haven’t posted it before because I didn’t think it worked. It felt too disjoint. But as the new canal link is open now and this view has changed dramatically, I feel the image works on some level. At the very least you can see how much has changed in 2 years.

    Has the statue gone now? or is it just slightly out of the picture on the newer one?

    @Lloyd – Thats a good point. I don’t know where that is.

    Though I can understand your comment about it not being a technically great photo, it still impresses.

    The Edward VII statue (the equestrian one) and the Sir Alfred Lewis Jones memorial were both being restored, so I guess that’s still going on. The ALJ one is going to be back in that area too when it’s all finished, or at least that was the original plan!

    oooh i just discovered it’s actually not going back there now :/ it’s going somewhere else – but I don’t know where!

    The ironic thing for me that after all the expense and hard work it looks better in this image than it does today :/
