This little set of “hand-tinted” images were photographed by me, then turned monochrome and then re-coloured using photoshop. I wanted to recreate the feel of hand tinted postcards from the turn of the 19th century and I think I’ve just about captured it :)
St Luke’s Church in Liverpool, England, is located on the corner of Berry Street and Leece Street opposite the top of Bold Street. It was designed by John Foster, and construction of the building began on 9 April 1811, with consecration taking place on 12 January 1831.
On 5 May 1941, during World War II, St Luke’s was hit and burned by an incendiary bomb. Today it still stands as a burnt out shell, commonly known locally as “the bombed-out church”, and its churchyard is a public park.
