Photographer's Note

Inspired by Rob Zwemmer's recent photographs from Liverpool, I decided to have a trawl through some more recent archives and found these two images which I thought might be just a bit of fun as a composite (or even a diptych!).

So if you would like to spend some time (and it is very well worth the time and effort) exploring Liverpool's revived Docklands, you are unlikely to go hungry for, as well as many bars and restaurants, there are also several fast food outlets such as these two vans.

You can see the location of the top image if you click on Map: view - and this location is very close to where Rob took his recent photograph "The Four Graces". And here, above the "Pie and Chips" van you can see the large dome of the Port of Liverpool Building and, behind, the two towers of the Royal Liver Building, each bearing its Liver Bird sculpture.

For those interested, the vehicle in the lower photograph is a 1938 Commer N1 van, Commer having been a British motor manufacturer which produced mainly commercial vehicles in the early 20th century. By 1938 the company had been taken over by Humber and subsequently became part of the Rootes Group until production ceased in 1979.
