The Great Eastern, New Ferry
At the junction of New Ferry Road with Shorefields. The SS Great Eastern was a ship designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. She was the largest ship ever built at the time of her 1858 launch, and had the capacity to carry 4,000 passengers around the world without refuelling. She was broken up for scrap at nearby Rock Ferry in 18891890 and the flag-pole was floated across the Mersey to Liverpool from where it was hauled up Everton Valley by a team of four horses and put in place at the Kemlyn Road corner of the Kop stands at Anfield where it stood for many years as a flagpole.
