Quayside shuffle

Liverpool’s waterfront is due to be transformed over the next few years with the construction of the new Museum of Liverpool.

In preparation a few small but significant changes have already taken place. Yesterday the Lusitania propeller and two buoys were carefully moved along the quayside to a new position, at a safe distance from the planned construction works.

The move, overseen by the Maritime Museum’s Shipkeeping, Industrial and Land Transport team, went very smoothly. Ian Murphy, curator of port history, was there to capture the move in these photos.
