Didnt know about this. I went when I was younger, me uncle took me to the building he worked at as an engineer in Liverpool waterfront at the time, cant remember what one it is, but it was one of the tallest at the time.

It was great from what I remember, but me uncle also took me around all the heating and ventilation rooms in the building lol.

Got a large framed photo that me uncles mate took of the QE2 in front of Liverpool waterfront, think hes a pro though. It must have been about 1995.

I might pop down to seacombe to see this one ya never know.

Some interesting info, its actually the QE2, its a common mis-conception that the QE2 was built for Queen Elizabeth II, but although she was queen when it launched and inaugurated it and indeed mistakenly called it the Queen Elizabeth the Second herself at it's launch, its real name is the Queen Elizabeth 2, with no reference to our current queen.

Its like the Queen Mary 2. I think I saw this on the Andrew Marr thing a few months ago on BBC lol.

The amount of useless info I know is stupid lol.
