Flood Height 21st June 1933
The Bootle & Litherland border at Akenside Street and Violet Road
A workman employed in the clean-up operations points to the height the flood waters reached. The railway sleepers to the right is the Litherland side of the border and the start of the 'Cinder Path' leading to Garrick, Irving, Phelps & Siddon Streets and the aptly named 'Wellington Road'.
I've estimated the workman's height as being 5' 5"
Same Location September 2004 — Flood Height Levels
The 1933 highest level was estimated at 12' at the lowest part of the road.

The brick buttress to the right is the Litherland side of the border and the start of the old 'Cinder Path' leading to Bridge Road and Seaforth Station via the aptly named 'Wellington Road'.
