Liverpool painting No.59. May I Start, May I Finish. Waterloo Road.

Looking towards town from the docks. Apparently this Victorian stretch of the dock hasn't escaped the attention of film makers.

SUPERSTAR trio Jude Law, Robert Downey Jr and Guy Ritchie have found a prime location to film forthcoming blockbuster Sherlock Holmes – Liverpool’s disused docks.

A stretch of Waterloo Road has been transported back in time to re-create dirt-covered streets of the 19th century, complete with horse-drawn carts and carriages.

They must have filmed looking away from town to avoid the ever rising new additions on the skyline.
