Harbour landing stage on fire

Dramatic Victorian illustration to download showing a picture of men watching from the rigging of a ship as the landing stage at Liverpool burns fiercely, July 1874. Designed by Sir William Cubitt and built between 1847 and 1857, the vast structure was totally destroyed. The cause may have been a gas explosion – a section of the landing stage was being fitted with gas pipes at the time.
