The Liverpool Waterloo Goods station seen from the air in 1865. The drawing was made from a balloon that was tethered above the River Mersey by the artists Jackson and Sulman. The proximity of the docks to the station is clearly illustrated. To the left of the station is Stuart Street. Along with the block of buildings to its left, the street was later taken over by the LNWR to allow for a northwards extension of the station. The arches that carried Great Howard Street over the line can be seen at the rear of the station and beyond them is the ‘Grand Arch’ of the LYR.
