A Mersey Dock (1907)

A Mersey Dock by C.J. Whitehead. A photo that was part of the Northern Photographic Exhibition held at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool in 1907.

The building at the back of the image is the Port of Liverpool building that had only very recently been completed. It is one of three buildings on the Mersey waterfront that are known collectively as the Three Graces. It forms part of Liverpool's UNESCO designated World Heritage Maritime Mercantile City.
