After a early morning start picked @Dangle_Angle up and of to the first location of the day. After a quick look at it decided to leave it for another day. Then of to Liverpool we went. We're we ended up at this warehouse it's stripped bare but some nice features still remain in the eight floors but the basement one was flooded. There's a lot of demolition work going on right behind it so not sure if this will be next. Couldn't find any info relating to the warehouse so stole it from @bignikb hope you don't mind.so here's a few photos and history..

Created in April 1965, they were a ships' stores supply company providing non specialised food, beverages and tobacco to docked vessels!
In those days, the Liverpool waterfront was a hive of activity with ships from all over the world mooring up to load or unload cargo. And the crews required large amounts of 'Shopping' to tick them over during the long, isolated voyages.
They traded with a list of agencies providing wholesale stock of many kinds, they are still listed on a first floor reception desk.
From 1990, there are no records of trading as the company was dissolved.

Nice.

Any idea about the history of the actual building?
I couldn't find anything apart from the history nicb posted on his report. I'd say the early 90s it ceased trading. Also for some reason there's a load of tyres and beer barrels so don't know if they were dumped there or are from previous business.
