This is probably the first photographic essay devoted to that glorious river frontage, capturing all the changing moods and shapes that make it easily and instantly recognisable anywhere in the world.
It showcases the magnificence of the regal buildings that stand as sentinels over the River Mersey and the citizens of Liverpool; silent, serene witnesses to their lives and deeds.
These are well loved and fabulous neo-classical structures that once housed the headquarters of most of Britain's mighty shipping lines, including the gracious Port of Liverpool Building, or the astounding Albert Dock complex created by Jesse Hartley.
This is a colourful, panoramic tribute to one of the world's greatest scenic views; artfully linking mankind's own ability to coordinate lovingly created and crafted buildings within nature's perfect framework. It features fascinating and unusual photographs taken from the shore and from the river itself from many different angles, or from the air for added perspective.
