The Mersey from a cable car

The Mersey from a cable car

Taken from a cable car in New Brighton fairground, 15th August 1960, and looking east across the Mersey to Alexandra and Brocklebank docks.
Two dredgers, the old and the new, heading down river.

Somewhere in one of many box's I two have photo's from this very position, of a slightly later vintage of 1965.

Just think of the pictures we could have taken if the tower and the pier were still there. I nearly fell off that helter skelter, I think it was sixpence ago; I got a sound beating off my Father when he found out as I was banned from the area and from mixing with other who frequented the area.

That dreadful zoo, to see the lions and tigers together with all the other animals in such cramped conditions was truly awful.

The sludge boat looks like the Mancunian (sp) before she was converted to diesel

Scouse.
