Floating Roadway, Pierhead, Liverpool
Floating Roadway, Pierhead, Liverpool
"The Floating Roadway was built between Princes Dock and George's Dock to provide shallow-grade access to the Liverpool landing stage and appears to have utilised the south side of George's Dock Basin. It is constructed in granite after the manner of Jesse Hartley. The Floating Roadway was fixed at the east end at ground level and attached at the west end to the landing stage, which rose and fell with the tide.... the cut has been shortened at its east end." (taken from a now defunct internet page, which may be accessible at LinkExternal link ) . (Thanks to Alan Fairweather for putting me on the right track for this feature).
Buildings behind include (left to right) Thistle Hotel, St Nicholas' church, Tower Building.
