Caption

Albert Dock was opened by Prince Albert in 1846, these imposing buildings were once overflowing with precious cargoes from foreign lands.

However, the docks built to accommodate sailing ships could not provide deep enough water for the new steamships, and after 1890 trade declined, leaving the Albert Dock largely disused until its closure in 1972.

Immediately to the left of the Albert Dock buildings is the dock's former pumphouse, now housing the Pumphouse Inn.

To the left of this, the tower of 'City Radio' can be seen.

To the left of this, various buildings from Liverpool's city centre can be seen, with the Liver Building at the far left.

The 'Tate Gallery' occupies the part of the Albert Dock building nearest the viewer, with the 'Merseyside Maritime Museum', 'Beatles Story', restaurants, cafes, shops & offices some of the current occupants.
