I have two very clear images in my memory of my first visit to Liverpool many , many years ago. The first is of a hotel bath at the Adelphi Hotel that was large enough to accommodate my three siblings and me. I sat with my back to the taps touching my feet with my brother John. Then my Mother tucked the baby between my legs and my sister between my brother’s. The second is an image of a noisy, bustling port with an assortment of ships tied up against the quayside as the cranes swung backwards and forwards unloading them. So much has changed since then. Liverpool benefitted from the award of “City of Culture” in 2008 and when I visited seven years ago there was absolutely no trace of the thriving port that I had known. I spent my time wandering along the former docksides photographing the renovated warehouses and exploring the shops and museums. This visit I spent a day once more exploring Albert Dock and in particular, Tate Liverpool.
