In the background of the top picture, Is that not the overhead railway?

Wrong side of the river pablo. The first pic. shows a station on the Overhead. Not sure which one - yet. The proximity of the Anglican Cathedral helps too.

The second one is also of a L'pool dock. You can just make out an Overhead train to the right of the dockside warehouse.

Could it have been Brunswick, Pinz?

Could well be Granny, although the angle of the dock in relation to the Cathedral is a bit "iffy" for Brunswick. The only station building I've found with the two "peaks" at the stairheads is Canning. Anglewise, that's not 100% convincing either!

A couple of more books to trawl through. Not going to be beaten by this..... sherlock

Yes, you're probably right Pinz. On second thoughts, Brunswick may have not been so close to the Cathedral.

A more accurate lining up of the dock/Catherdral angle seems to home in on Wapping - which was the station between Brunswick and Canning. I think we were both out on that one Granny. ha.ha.

I can't find any exterior shots of Wapping Station. It was blatted in the war and rebuilt in a basic utilitarian style. Sooooooooo dating the shot has to be fed in the mixer as well!

Can anyone put a date on the Coaster (?) in the dock? Or maybe the length of the North wing of the Catherdral (still under construction) would give a rough date?

My brain hurts!

Top picture. What is the tall building rising above in the top left hand corner, does anyone know? Could it be James Street station?

My money is on Dukes Dock.

"Built to promote Liverpools inland trade. For bulk cargoes travelling landwards from the seaport there was provision for barges and flats".

Well spotted Granny. I'm sure that IS the hydraulic tower that was at James St. Station (Mersey Rlwy.) before it was bombed. Ctrl and + shows it up a treat.

So is the station in the photo James St. (LOR) ??

More map shuffling required - later!

Wapping! Because so far as I can see the overhead railway went straight along the main street called Wapping.(still is)Didn't seem to have a station at Dukes Dock. There was a Custom House Staton, but I think that may have been too close to Salthouse.

This is beginning to annoy me now.. Going out!

The LOR stations from Pier Head going south were Pier Head, James St., Canning, Wapping, Brunswick etc. You are quite right Granny, there was a Custom House Station. It was renamed Canning in 1940 after Custom House Building was destroyed.

Have been shuffling a 1:10,000 map of the docks and a 1940's 1" to mile OS sheet around. On my 2nd bottle of Librium and not 100% sure of anything anymore.....................

It's all your fault Pablo !!!!

Over to you Granny. Your investigative skills seem well honed ! grin
