Ray Hely: An Engineer's Eye, Liverpool 1971-1993 - Liverpool Regional Museum

Tuesday, 04 August 2020 - Wednesday, 23 December 2020 | 10am - 4pm | Liverpool | Kids; Seniors; Young Adults; Multicultural; General

Ray Hely (b1930) was a Senior Civil Engineer employed by Liverpool City Council from 1971 - 1993.

Ray was aware that Liverpool was rapidly changing, particularly the Central Business District and land released for subdivision and development.

His photographic skills were recognised by Council with an initial request to photograph Liverpool City Council's 1971 celebrations, which included the Festival of Progress. The informal commission grew into a rare and extensive photographic archive, films and industrial heritage artefacts, which he salvaged from Liverpool Powerhouse, now Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre.

They are the official, the unofficial and unseen Liverpool - spanning over two decades into the 1990s. Look back, consider progress and reflect on today with 2020 vision through the rear lens of An Engineer's Eye.

"...he photographed anything and anyone. Very little in Liverpool escaped his lens."
