This statue was one of the first things we saw when we got to Liverpool. Rather than driving into the city centre, we drove to Seacombe on the other side of the River. Free parking and a ten minute picturesque ferry across the River Mersey. We arrived in the heart of the waterfront. Getting off the ferry at Liverpool Pier Head Ferry Terminal . For those already in the city looking for this statue, it is at the end of Brunswick Street. This 1.2 tone bronze statue was sculpted by Andrew Edwards. The fab four are very detailed and a little larger than life size. We had to wait a few minutes for other tourists to have their photographs taken in front of the statue.
This is a close up detail of the eat side of the “bombed out church” in Liverpool, at St. Luke’s Church. As you can see this window is completely open to the elements. The reason this church is a burnt out, roofless shell is that it was bombed in May 1941. Although you can’t go “inside”, the church grounds are open to the public and definitely worth a visit if you’re passing.
On a recent day trip to Liverpool with Ben and Liz we went to the Tate art gallery at the Albert Docks. Although I have photographed Planet before I thought it was worth capturing this big red boat in Dukes Dock again. I still have little idea of what it is doing. I haven’t ever been on board but it has been there for years. I realise that it was probably once a light house boat but not sure what it does now. Is it really a bar as it says on the side?
This is an alternative view of St Luke’s Church in Liverpool, which shows more clearly how although from the outside at certain angles it looks like a normal church, it is in fact merely a shell with no windows or roof. It makes me wonder what will become of this “building”. I can’t see it ever being repaired back to its original condition, but at the same time think it would be sad if it was knocked down to make way for something new. Only time will tell.
