1907 Visit of the Channel Fleet to Liverpool

I am fascinated by this visit, which took place on the 700th 'Birthday' of the City of Liverpool, the visiting fleet comprising 14 Battleships and 3 Cruisers under the command of

Admiral Lord Charles Beresford.


A contemporary report can be viewed here: http://www.old-merseytimes.co.uk/channelfleet1907.html


I find it quite surpising how 'little' further information, photos or even film seems to exist, at least as far as my internet searches reveal - can anyone point me towards such information, please?
