Stewart Bale architectural photos now online

The latest in a series of online exhibitions of photos from the Stewart Bale archive is now on the website, featuring some of Liverpool’s architectural landmarks. As always, they’re all great pictures, but of particular interest to me are three photos showing the city’s cathedrals during construction. It’s fascinating to see how these now familiar features on the Liverpool skyline actually took shape.

You can zoomify in to see the details of each picture – in the interior shot of the Anglican Cathedral for example you can examine every block in a temporary wall at the back.
