Sunrise on the beginnings of a new museum

Here’s the view from this morning’s ferry of the Museum of Liverpool construction site. Not the most informative photo I’ll admit, but I’m just a sucker for a beautiful sunrise. You can’t really tell from this but trust me, lots of progress has been made since I last wandered out on deck with a camera in my hand. You can just make out the top of the formwork in between the two central cranes. After all the years of planning, this really brings home the reality that we’ll have a whole new museum before too long.

I would say that I’ll keep you updated with pictures of the progress but with the mornings getting darker it could be a while before it’s light enough to see what’s going on!

Update 26/10/07: I did get a slightly clearer photo this week but if you actually want to see what’s happening then have a look at Karen’s post of the Museum of Liverpool construction by day.
