Liverpool Pictures

Saturday 18/09/2004

Chestertourist.com visits historic Liverpool. Here are some interesting photos.

Below is one of the four propellers from the ship Lusitania, which was torpedoed and sunk by the Germans off the coast of southern Ireland in May 1913 with the lost of 1201 lives. The ship was returning to Liverpool from New York. This action may have influenced America in its decision to join the war.

The propeller weighs 23 tons and is cast in bronze. It replaced the earlier 3 bladed propellers originally fitted to the ship, so it would gain an extra knot in speed. It was salvaged in 1982 and brought to Liverpool in 1989.

"During the famine years 1842-52 over one million Irish people left from this shore to escape hunger and poverty and to seek a new life across the seas. Remember the great famine."

Here are some memorials from the water front.
"The brave do not die their deeds live forever and call upon us to mutate their courage and devotion to duty."

The Albert Dock was built between 1841 and 1846. It was opened by HRH The Prince Consort on 30th July 1846. It was restored 1983 to 1988. And reopened by HRH The Prince of Wales on 24th May 1988. The 'This Morning' studio is now a shop called 'ocean'.
