Bombed Out: Liverpool Then and Now Photos (2)

(Click to enlarge all photos)

Many people commented on the recent ‘Liverpool Then and Now’ post I put up, which featured the superb photographs of Keith Jones, showing modern-day Liverpool street scenes juxtaposed with old photographs taken from the same place, decades earlier.

I’ve chosen a few more of Keith’s photos for this article (all of which are copyrighted to him), as being somehow relevant to the story, history or streetscapes featured in Bombed Out!

The first photograph (above) shows a street scene in 1897, when the site of the Port of Liverpool Building (seen on the left in the 2014 photo) was still a dock – George’s Dock. If you look closely, you’ll see the distinctive Albion House being built in the background to the right, above the heads of the two men.

I also like what Keith then did with these two photos:

The two photographs combined.

Another frequently referred to Bombed Out! location is Church Street, although not for shopping reasons.
