That's a great link Derek , thanks for that , can't wait till it's complete (e.g. Lady Lever ).

The Williamson has some great pictures that it isn't displaying. Whilst this is always going to be a difficult choice due to space constraints and of course art being a subjective subject I can't help thinking I would like to see more paintings of local scenes than it currently displays. The gallery has a large room dedicated to prints of ancient Liverpool. Whilst interesting I would much prefer to see paintings depicting old Wirral.

Excellent find!
I like the view from Woodside Slip, page 1, pre Graysons and Lairds. Someone on this site was wishing for old photos of 'wayback' so these are the answer, and in colour.

If I remember correctly, David Hillhouse, some of whose work is shown on the link you posted derekdwc, designed one or more of the windows in the Priory.
He worked for the council but I don't know if he still does.
