Default Crosby Brick Beach Photo Exhibition - 15-05-2011, 12:55

On Renshaw Street in Liverpool is a great photo exhibition of the Brick Beach at Crosby.

It's a mix of B&W HDR photos of the beach and the bricks and debris, coupled with data on where they came from, how many houses were damaged and how many died.

I'll try and get more details, but if you're in the area its well worth a look.

Ive been trying to find pics of the houses that subsided and fell as a result of the River Alt changing its course. I know that a lot of it is debris from bomb sites in and around liverpool. Ill try and swing by
