The Wellington Column on Commutation Row, overlooking William Brown Street,London Road and Lime Street and standing alongside the Steble Fountain is a well known landmark in Liverpool, I was fortunate enough to be one of very few people to get a chance to go up there and that is exactly what I did just recently. The photographs on the link below are a chance for us all to take a look at the city from this rare vantage point.


St Georges Hall & the World's first air conditioning system

I was privileged and honoured recently, to be given a private tour, along with about 15 Liverpool University Engineering students by Dr Neil S Sturrock JP BEng PhD CEng FCIBSE MSLL MILP MEI and Chairman of the Heritage Group of the Chartered Institution of Building Services and a retired Senior Lecturer in Building Engineering studies at LJMU. Add to this he is the authority on Dr David Boswell Reid, inventor and implementer of the World's First Air Conditioning system which the St Georges Hall is undoubtedly built around.

Another Introduction 

Look what happened

1970 (with hair)
This time from your site designer Bob, it's been a real pleasure to collaborate with Ged Fagan to transfer the contents of 'In A City Living' from its original home on 'Piczo' (who are now closed down) to this 
shiny new 'Google' website. 
'In A City Living' at 'Piczo' had over 5 Million visitors during it's time and we hope to welcome many of those to the new page.  In addition to the content from the old site we have added 25 Liverpool Districts with more than 6,000 photographs from the Liverpool Records Office and other contributors to the page.  We will be constantly updating and adding to the site and  hope you enjoy it. Come back often and tell your friends !
You can read my Local History articles and view photographs
at  my  'Liverpool Picturebook' Website!

Its all here for you at 'In A City Living '

Do you believe in ghosts? Forget spurious claims on certain staged t.v. programmes or far fetched books. In the 1990s a car advert was made but upon closer inspection by the director, something very spooky was seen and heard as the car emerged from behind some bushes and as such it didn't pass the watchdog criteria for screening. view it now  - but be sure to have your sound up, it's very eerie.

It's not often I manage to wangle an afternoon out on my own, so was I glad when faced with some DIY at home to get out and come across this pair of topless strippers in a fine and heaving city centre establishment.
