Houses at Port Sunlight
Image by Snapshooter46
Port Sunlight is a model village and ‘Conservation Area’ on the Wirral Peninsula between Lower Bebington and New Ferry. Construction began in 1888; today the village comprises 900 Grade II listed buildings.
Named after the popular brand of "Sunlight Soap", Port Sunlight was built by William Hesketh Lever (later Lord Leverhulme) for the employees of Lever Brothers soap factory (now part of Unilever). Lever personally helped to plan the village and employed nearly thirty different architects in its design. Between 1899 and 1914, 800 houses with a population of 3,500 were built, together with allotments and public buildings, including the Lady Lever Art Gallery, a cottage hospital, schools, a concert hall, open air swimming pool, church, and a temperance hotel. Lever also introduced schemes for welfare, education and the entertainment of his workers, and encouraged recreation and organisations which promoted art, literature, science or music.
Port Sunlight Village is delightful to stroll around, and its Lady Lever Art Gallery and nearby Museum are well worth visiting.
RMS Queen Mary 2 leaving Outer Harbor (3)

The ship manouevered owards the entrance to the Port River so she would have the room to turn around. In this photo she’s just beginning to do so.
RMS Queen Mary 2 is a transatlantic ocean liner, completed in 2004 for the Cunard Line. She was the first major ocean liner built since Queen Elizabeth 2 in 1969, the vessel she succeeded as Cunard’s flagship liner. The new ship was named Queen Mary 2 after the first RMS Queen Mary, completed in 1936 and named after Mary of Teck, consort of King George V. With the retirement of Queen Elizabeth 2 2008, Queen Mary 2 is the only transatlantic ocean liner in service running the traditional Southampton-New York route. The ship is also often used for cruising, including an annual world cruise.
At the time of her construction in 2003 by Chantiers de l’Atlantique Shipyard in France, Queen Mary 2 was the longest, widest, and tallest passenger ship ever built, and with her gross tonnage of 148,528 she was also the largest. Although her size has since been far surpassed by later cruise ships, Queen Mary 2 remains the largest ocean liner (as opposed to cruise ship) ever built.
Being a true ocean liner and intended to routinely cross the Atlantic Ocean, Queen Mary 2’s design differs from cruise ships in several ways and required 40% more steel than a conventional cruise ship. She was constructed with high-quality materials to withstand Atlantic conditions and has a maximum speed of just over 30 knots, much faster than cruise ships. She achieves these high speeds using gas turbines (originally designed for aircraft) to supplement her diesel engines.
Queen Mary 2’s facilities include fifteen restaurants and bars, five swimming pools, a casino, a ballroom, a theatre, a dog kennel, a nursery, and the first planetarium at sea.
Queen Mary 2 was registered in Southhampton, United Kingdom until October 2011, when it was changed to Hamilton, Bermuda. This allows the ship to host onboard weddings.
