 Welcome to Liverpool
I thought i would start my visit by steering the wee 112 year old Glaciere Tall Ship(which has sunk 3 times....yes 3) around the harbour.
 Not a Tall Ship but a tall 17 stories of a ship.

 Albert Dock, Dry Dock
Old Pilot Boat
House boats located at Albert Dock.

 Some of these types of house boats participated in the jubilee parade of boats on the Thames River.

 Good cop bad cop?

 China must still be looking for this entrance and they would never think to look in Liverpool.

 Liverpool Cathedral is one big Cathedral founded in 1880. (5Th largest cathedral in the world)
Totally completed in 1978 with a dedication and attended by the Queen. 
 Built with large sandstone blocks and also made possible by cranes in the 20Th century.

Frederick Arthur Stanley, 16TH Earl of Derby donated the first $10,000 to the Liverpool Cathedral.
Most people would know the Earl for donating the Stanley Cup and Stanley Park.
This is a monument to The Earl of Derby is in the Cathedral.

 St. Luke's Church otherwise known as the bombed/burnt out church was destroyed by a incendiary bomb Monday May 5 1941 by the Luftwaffe.
 The church almost looks normal walking up to it until you start getting closer. The land around the church is kept beautifully manicured and nowadays people sit on the land to eat their lunch or just do some reading. 
 I bet it was a hard days and nights during the Beatles first concerts at this famous club.
Not sure if Sgt. Pepper was the doorman.
 I am sure with the fans going crazy three floors down it must have felt like Helter Skelter some nights.

 The club is actually quite large with a separate room for other live events off to the side that accommodates 450 people. 
 Two pints please.

 John Lennon on the street.

 Interesting architecture, blending new with old.

 These are the types of buildings you encounter all along the water front.

 Giving the ship a little Help leaving.

Wind power leaving Liverpool.
Sun is trying to break through.
