Have a look here there are a few photographs of the Gasworks and Steel Street.

It does make some harrowing reading.

A bit deceiving ...at the bottom of the very first post you will see in large Blue letters
LIVERPOOL DAYS ...<<< My Website of Liverpool images .....click on this
his website is a little complicated but there are literally thousands of photos

http://www.liverpooldays.com/p107351193  this is just ONE link

enjoy ....and he does have some for sale - so if you find Steel Street you may be able to purchase it
