Liverpool, England

“In 1955 there were still more than 11,000 gas lamps lighting the streets and alleys of Liverpool and the Corporation Cleansing Department still used horse-drawn wagons to collect the garbage: fifty-seven heavy shire horses, direct descendants of the old English war horse, capable of carrying a knight in full armour, pulled the heavy wagons, their iron-shod hoofs striking sparks from the cobbles.”

  • Paul McCartney, Many Years From Now by Barry Miles

Reading this book (and some others as pictured on Tumblr)…cool to have been able to see some of the places mentioned in the writing, thanks to our trip to the UK this past May. Some photos from Liverpool are below!

Muddy riverbanks.
