Description
"Old and the New, Liverpool."

Like all cities, time does not stand still and it shouldn’t. Here is an image of the Parish Church of Liverpool, St Nicholas. There has been a place of worship here since 1257. A church followed called St. Nicholas in 1362 but over the years it became little more than a ruin, but in 1699 the church was enlarged and it became the Parish Church of Liverpool. Time has seen much change, the spire being rebuilt and the May Blitz of 1941 found it directly hit and virtually destroyed. It was quickly restored and stood out, higher than the buildings around it and clearly seen from the river. Many a returning seaman has been moved to tears when the spire comes into view. Now, new buildings overpower “St Nick’s” but it is still much loved locally and has a quiet gardens, where a little tranquillity can be enjoyed.

There is a sense here of the 'old' being overwhelmed by the 'new' and the inevitable march of 'progress'. A very interesting narrative.
