Despite being named Europe's official Capital of Culture for 2008, Liverpool has its share of social problems, as demonstrated by the window graffiti on this rundown building.  Home of the Beatles and the Merseybeat poets, Liverpool was once a proud hub of trade and culture until the 1970s, when its ports and manufacturing industries began a sharp decline. Now, years later, Liverpool is once again on the rise.
