While much of the design and equipment are mostly the same, I've only just noticed that most of the internal photos and 360s of DoES is still of the Hanover Street Building.

Google has a feature of suggesting edits but I can't quite figure out how to suggest edits of old internal photos for present-day ones.

Not vitally important, but it seems that the Hanover Street photos meta-tags also causes Google to display a mini-map of the location of the Hanover Street Building.

I've made this panorama with the aforementioned gimbal and my phone as a test:

The panorama was generated with Hugin, thanks much to @Thingomy for suggesting this almost a year ago. There's too much parallax to get a perfect panorama since I used the camera in horizontal orientation rather than vertical, but when these are done next time they will be held vertically to reduce parallax.

For the record, I tried to edit this today and it looks like we don't actually have access to it, it's currently claimed by someone with an email address beginning with cl***@..... I've requested access so if it's someone here can you transfer it please.

I now have access, I've had to flag the old photos as it won't let you just delete them. I've focussed on the 360s as the others are less clear where they're taken and show people or equipment (and it's a PITA to flag things). I've also uploaded a load of more recent photos. I've also set a "short name" so that we can be found at https://g.page/DoESLiverpool?gm

(Looks like it was owned by Paul Freeman, I've added others as owners now alongside me)
(Seems like we probably shouldn't have edited the address but added a new "location", that way we'd have had a fresh set of photos)

Similarly, some or the info stored on this GitHub about DoES Liverpool is also outdated - mainly by referring to the Hanover Street Building.

For example, DoESLiverpool/somewhere-safe has an entry about disability parking and access.

Perhaps this should be raised as a separate "somebody should" but it's kind of related to the theme of updating the Digital DoES Liverpool identities for the new building and location.
