People from afar can get a live glimpse of the goings on in Liverpool, now that the waterfront webcam has gone live.

To help celebrate, a crowd of around 20 people gathered on the waterfront to produce a few memorable images for those that were watching.

Liverpool will join 70 other communities in Nova Scotia that already have webcams, including Lunenburg, Mahone Bay and White Point Beach Resort

"There are a lot of South Shore webcams already, and we will likely get carry over views from them as well," says Heather Cook, spokesperson for the Region of Queens.

The webcam is located on the Visitor Information Centre, and points towards the harbour and Privateer Park.

Coun. Brian Fralic initially proposed the idea to bring a webcam to Liverpool, and it was approved by Region of Queens municipal council in the 2014/2015 budget.  

The webcam was budgeted at $3,200 for this year, which includes the installation cost. In upcoming fiscal years the webcam will cost $99 per month to operate.
