The Shanghai Palace

The Shanghai Palace

Tomorrow the Shanghai Palace is set to close after 30 years. Its not the nicest of building to look at but it is a kind of iconic figure. Its been there longer than I’ve drawn breath. It will soon be knocked down in the name of culture and redevelopment. I’m sure the new Pier Head will look fantastic but I can’t help think of the things we keep loosing to have a better Liverpool. We’ve now lost access to the Pier Head and I do feel thats too steep a price in Liverpool’s 800th Birthday Year.
