Photograph submitted by Richie from Nerve Magazine.  The images shows a view looking North towards the station from the junction of where Upper Parliament Street meets Tunnel Road and Smithdown Road.  The street is filled with policemen and horses with, what we can assume are, strking workers.  The 1911 Liverpool General Transport Strike involved dock workers, sailors and railway workers.  It paralysed trade in Liverpool during the summer of 1911 and led to the growth of a more powerful trade union system.
