An oblique aerial view of Liverpool with the Pier Head and waterfront area in the foreground. From left to right are the Liver Building, Cunard Building and Mersey Docks and Harbour Board Building - sometimes referred to as the 3 Graces. While these 3 buildings are still the same in 2011 the area around has changed a great deal. The Leeds and Liverpool canal now ends on the Pier Head. The new Musuem of Liverpool has been built where the car park is and blocks of flats behind there. The green space that was Chevasse Park in 2002 is now the site of Liverpool One Shopping Mall. Many other landmarks can be seen further back including St John's Tower, St George's Hall and Lime Street Station.
