PUMPHOUSE AND BUOYS – MANN ISLAND, LIVERPOOL

PUMPHOUSE AND BUOYS - MANN ISLAND, LIVERPOOL

A view of the Mersey Railway pump-house and two dockside buoys, seen nestled between two of the more modern buildings which have now been built at the Mann Island complex in Liverpool.

The pumphouse was built in 1878 to extract water from the underground railway which ran beneath the River Mersey. There is a similar structure in existence on the Wirral in Shore Road which serves the same purpose.

The photo was taken from Hartley Quay which runs alongside the Canning Dock.

Five exposure high-definition (Photomatix 5); post-processing in Photoshop CS2.
