Flush Bracket OSBM 2607: Liverpool, Tide Gauge   

Flush Bracket on building adjoining Tide Gauge, entrance to George's Pierhead - estimated location; note that the description for FB 2603 in the Flush Bracket Register duplicates the description shown for FB 2607 in the 2GL abstract, so there evidently was (and still is) some confusion as to the actual FB number! FB 2607 reported 1947 as destroyed.
