I took this photo for the book Liverpool Then and Now (published mid-2012). it matches up with an old photograph. The photo is taken from the roof of the apartment building opposite the pier.
The scene today looks very different to how it looked in the past. This is another photograph that can only be taken in the morning when the sun is shining from the east.
