Fascinating Liverpool: The Liverpool Overhead Railway

I was working at my employer's conference at the Arena and Convention Centre Liverpool in Liverpool last week.

Being in that part of the city put me in mind of the Liverpool Overhead Railway. It ran along the length of Liverpool's dockland between 1893 and 1956.

This film tells its story. You can see archive footage of the line in operation in a video I posted last year.

Fascinating indeed, thank you. Talking about Liverpool, see http://herbeppel.blogspot.co.uk/2015/05/liverpool.html - one day I might get round to adding some commentary...
