The competition winner: Ferry Cross The Mersey 1972 © Bernard Rose

The On the Waterfront exhibition explored significant changes on Liverpool's waterfront. Today the people who visit the Merseyside Maritime Museum and the Albert Dock are part of that story, so we held a photography competition to give our visitors the chance to be part of the exhibition.  

We asked visitors to send in their photographs, old or new, showing Liverpool’s waterfront and how it has changed over the years. There were 488 entries and the winner has now been chosen by our panel of judges. The winning photograph, 'Ferry Cross the Mersey 1972' by Bernard Rose, was on display in the On the Waterfront exhibition from 10 May until 19 June 2016.
