Liverpool 25 -ish years on (Day 2)

One of those iconic things about Liverpool is that Ferry - you can take it across the Mersey.

Sir Peter Blake was commissioned 
He Dazzled and We took it

The round trip is not a long one (about an hour all in)  but there's plenty to see and learn about the Ferry (a version has been crossing the river for hundreds of years).

You can also see a different view of the 'Three Graces'.

We also took a city bus tour which told of the 'Good Old Days' (not so good low life expectancy, Typhoid and slums ) but also the pioneering work of  Borough Medical Officer William Henry Duncan .
