In the late 1980s I visited Merseyside at intervals to photograph the changing dock scene.  I'm pleased I found this picture of the MDHB loco works at Princes Dock, as I can now estimate the height of the building from the number of brick courses.   This workshop was very near the long demolished running shed at Princes Dock station.   It was used briefly to store a preservation loco (please see earlier posts).  The MDHB main line and Riverside branch continue past a transit shed to the Waterloo corn warehouse in the distance.

Is this a mobile 'tar furnace' on the left please?  Or something else?   A sand dryer? Preservation era image.   Duncan Models produces a 7mm tar boiler.

Here below is the Duncan Models tar boiler for comparison.   If it is not a tar boiler, what was it please?
