This is the view from the pier looking south over the Marine Lake. This photo is featured in the book 'Liverpool Then and Now' (published mid-2012). It appears side by side with an old postcard of the same scene from around a century ago.
To see the old photo you'll need to buy the book! It is published by Anova Books and the author is Mike Royden
