I bought a lot from an auction a while ago and there was a pack of photos from the 40's and 50's mixed in. I have done some research and one of the photos is an original commission from a photographer for the Mersey tunnel corporation themselves. I have the emails from the Mersey tunnel History department to back this up, they told me it is missing from a collection of 300 odd.
Also included are original photos from the docks, including originals of ships and newly built ships. There is also a book on local History, every page has a pic, most are during the war an showing the overhead railway in Liverpool, New Brighton pier ect....
I really don't know what these are worth, I am open to offers.
As rules state I need a price, lets say 50.

The book is called 'Looking Back', Liverpool and New Brighton photographed by Elsam, Mann and Cooper.
There are 14 separate photos. I've just had a look through and forgot to mention, there are a few of the original 'Stone Marine' company too. About half of the photos are 12 x 10 and then the rest are a bit smaller, these are not small pics taken with a home camera. I think if you spent the time and contacted Mersey Docks and Harbour Company (Peel Ports), Stone Marine ect.... There is some money to be made on these.
