DSCF7921 Sightseeing buses in Liverpool - 16 Jun 2017
Friday 16 June 2017 (1231) – The Pier Head in Liverpool is home to three of the city’s many grand buildings. The unmistakable Royal Liver Building (on which the clocks had stopped) features the famous Liver Birds. On the left is the Cunard Building and out of shot is the Liverpool Port Authority Building. And, oh yeah (or should I say YEAH! YEAH! YEAH! ???) there are these statues of four well known guys from Liverpool with whom everyone seemed to want to have their photograph taken.

In the past the whole Pier Head area was the terminus for the city’s buses and trams but nowadays only the sightseeing buses call here. There are the red buses of Liverpool City Sights Limited (‘Sightseeing Liverpool’ and/or ‘City Sights Liverpool’) and the yellow buses of Maghull Coaches Limited (‘City Explorer’). Both companies had buses parked at the Pier Head to sell tickets. That on the right is Maghull Coaches N757 OAP (Scania/East Lancs new to Brighton & Hove in May 1996) and that in the centre of the photograph is LCSL T2 (S855 DGX) (a Volvo Olympian/East Lancs new to Metrobus in September 1998). The LCSL bus (far left) was 306 (V511 ESC) (Dennis Trident/Plaxton President new to Lothian in October 1999).
