Probably the Lighthouse ... though may be building to left. marking the entrance to the docks for vessels on the river - prior to Ship Canal being built. (Still there!)

The industry here was attracted by the building of the Birmingham & Liverpool Junction Canal (now better known as The Shropshire Union). The Manchester Ship Canal attracted the oil industry to the area.
