Liverpool’s northern docks & the railways that served them – North Mersey & Bankfield Goods Yards

Some time back a posted articles on this blog site about regarding historic railway scenes across Merseyside from photos I had purchased copies of from the National Railway Museum in York.

Here are the final 4 photos which all relate to the northern docks in Bootle:-
