Think the image came from an exhibition held as part of Capital of Culture 2008, The other images I have somewhere, are of a cinema in Wavertree and a few of the Liverpool waterfront taken from on board a vessel, I can post them up if anyone is interested, just didn't want to overpopulate with Liverpool. Will have a fiddle in the hard drive.

One of the classic Mersey Tunnel construction pictures. Gives an idea of the overall size of the "tube". The more pictures we have the better kamikazi9. Thanks for posting. We will overlook the Liverpool related stuff. They can't help being on the wrong side of the river after all !!!! ha.ha.

Was just able to make out the caption; I believe it says:

"The Mersey Tunnel 22nd Feb. 1931
44' Dia. Tunnel looking towards Liverpool from Birkenhead"

These are the other images I had, yes I know they are of L***rp**l but thought they may be of interest. If the new cinema foyer in New Brighton looks like this then I'm definitely getting a season ticket. Hope I'm not infringing anyone's copyright.

Yes, apparently Squirrels have an uncanny knack of running away from leaks before they occur so they were used in subaqua tunnels like canaries were used in coal mines wink

Well spotted Delta6 if you check out the waterfront pic bottom dead centre there is the unmistakeable shape of a robin wearing a hoody looking directly into the lens (I think)
