Steel Yourself for The Beatles

by gordonmichaelsutton

Yesterday Yorkshire, today New Brighton on the Wirral. It was becoming a little stormy and the River Mersey and the sky above Liverpool in the distance both looked a steely grey.This was taken from the spot where the ferry used to tie up and deliver daytrippers in their droves to the funfair, Perch Rock, and New Brighton’s open air swimming baths. It was also where the Tower Ballroom stood, venue for well over two dozen early Beatles’ gigs.

While this shot looks out towards an equally threatening Liverpool Bay and Irish Sea.

Although there’s a lifeguard station stands on the shoreline, the only occupants of the beach today were flocks of seagulls. No daytrippers here today, and certainly no Beatles on this steely shoreline.
