Giant Grasshopper at Birkenhead
This building is officially known as the Shore Road Pumping Station and was built in the 1870s to pump out water from the Mersey Railway tunnel. The centrepiece is a huge steam engine known as the 'Giant Grasshopper'. It is now run by electricity, for show. It is open to the public at weekends. Behind the front wall is a 1901 street scene.
