I also have this book, its a realy fascinating insight into merseyside during the early years of WW2.
Printed by The Liverpool Echo and Daily Post in 1943 and costing Two Shillings and sixpence (Twelve and Half Pence now)
You should post the page titled "Human Cameos" (half way thru)

Heikel: I think the circular tank in Borough Road was an EWS tank. (Emergency Water Supply). For use in putting out fires if the mains were ruptured. That said, most of the others I have seen were rectangular ones. Can't think of what else it could be ?

The circular structure is possibly a temporary depot for clearance work and equipment.

The circular thing is an EWS as already stated.
