Great pics ken and JUXTAPOL...and a Fantastic Idea for a thread kenny


You'll find pics of Mersey Liners on here ken http://www.mersey-gateway.org/server...=SearchResults

You can upload these Images ken and show them on here as long as you mention who own's the copyright,which is usually stated at the bottom of each piccie.

In fact you'll find almost anything you want in Liverpool Images..just put the name of a Street/Road in the search box and if it is in the archives it will come up.

That Lyria is a belter, I love seeing cruise liners in the Mersey but real big Container ships are just as welcome.

Yes Ged , we were using this site to follow "tug movements" when the Cruise Liner pontoons were being fixed to the Dolphins.

Thumbs up River traffic..........

Kenny, great thread and yes its amazing that we have never had a "River Mersey" thread,( I don`t think?) the nearest we got was a "Merseyferries" thread. they say great minds think alike well last night I was shuffling my pics into some sort of order , and bingo ended up with a file called....River Mersey.............





My favorites, the "mini-coopers" of the river.......









Last but not least,

Great idea for a thread, I have thousands of ship images but very few taken on the Mersey. However, I am enjoying those posted. Keep them coming and thanks.

To be honest Ged ,i can hardly remember taking them ,at least 10 years ago mate,the lyria pic ,it was brass monkeys,winter.ive never seen two tankers come off tranmere at the same time.pics where taken south of woodside ,you get more elavation or height from that spec.once the tugs have pointed them north up river,youve got all the time in the world to bang away and get some pics

How about a ship called Mersey which was built on the Mersey?

Hello.

My old man did 30 years service in the merchant navy for Esso, and spent a great deal of his time on 3 "Mersey Class" boats - Mersey, Clyde, and Severn, which were built at Cammell Laird of Birkenhead during the 1970s



Esso Mersey - more pics and info

Esso Clyde

Esso Severn

Great thread

So much sexier than looking at pictures of planes and a strong flavour of what the city used to be all about.

Harmony and her sister Symphony have both visited the Mersey on a number of occasions. The picture below was taken when she was leaving St Thomas, USVI.
