Alvis at the Carriage Works

Alvis at the Carriage Works
An Alvis TD21 (I believe), in gorgeous condition, just minding its own business outside a restaurant on Liverpool's Hope Street — oddly, but appropriately-ish here, named "The London Carriage Works".

I've always fancied an Alvis and this one reinforces that, though I'd have to have a soft-top!

I'll take the opportunity to provide a cautionary tale: I've stayed at the hotel associated with this restaurant, the Hope Street Hotel. It carried a good reputation, which I understand is due to the restaurant. I didn't eat there, but I can certainly say I wouldn't stay in the hotel again. Hugely over-priced, not especially nice, and that's after I had the hassle of getting a room - they'd lost my booking even though I'd confirmed it. Even when they did give me a room, they tried to "downgrade" me without offering a discount on the price I'd agreed for the better room. You never get this nonsense with Travelodge! ;)
