Before 1793 there was no place of worship for the many Presbyterians who had moved from Scotland to Liverpool. A small group led by Dr. John McCulloch raised enough money to build a Kirk on Oldham Street. It was opened in the early summer of 1793 with seating for 820 people. On 6 March 1823 25 members of the congregation led by Dr. John McCulloch left over the appointment of the Reverend John Stewart by Mr. McIver over the Reverend Dr. David Thom. They agreed to build a new church and to offer it to the Reverend Dr. David Thom. He accepted and opened the Music Hall as a temporary chapel on 23 March 1823. On 17 June 1823 the foundation stone of the new church in Rodney Street was laid and it opened on 3 December 1824. The church was closed in 1975, but Sunday services continued in a suitable room in Liverpool Cathedral. This building is a Grade 2 Listed and in an affluent part of our great city and i am really surprised that more has not been done to restore its condition
This photo was taken from inside the Arizona State Capital Building looking up. This building is now a museum and is free of charge. It is a very educational and fun place to visit if you are in the downtown area and have a couple of hours to look around. The anchor to the USS Arizona is sitting outside so miss it.
Nottingham, England. I thought black and white brings out the textures quite well here. The inn sign on the Trip to Jerusalem, supposedly dating from 1189 [during the reign of King Henry II, so quite some time ago], alongside the massive sandstone rock that Nottingham Castle sits upon.
What i notice, every corner in this abandoned place, it's not so dark after all. Sunlight coming in through the broken window creating a wonderful impact for photography. Wasting it is waiting to be demolish.
