    Default Seagulls

    Does anyone know if the statue of the seagulls that used to be in the courtyard of the Atlantic Tower hotel is still there ?

    If not where has it gone ?

    I was discussing the statues of Liverpool with my Father last night and this one came up. I asked in the reception of the hotel today and got blank looks from the three young girls working there !!

    This picture may act as a memory jog just in case you wonder just what the hell I am on about !!

    Hi 3aziah,
    I worked there for a while, in the 80's,but I can't say I remember that sculpture!? But, like many things in the hotel, such as the Beatles memorabilia,from one of the bar's,has it just disappeared!

    Here they are:

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    They are still there, I took a pic of them in the summer and they are on my site below, on the streets ahead page I think.
