    A great example of the contrast between old and modern. The old fashioned university buildings is architecturally a delight. The new Heating Infrastructure Project Building sticks out like an unpleasant eyesore. The contrast is shocking.

    I've not seen either of these statues. I shall have to hunt them down. Was Bessie Braddock leader of the council? When I grew up, she was talked of in great reverance.

    Great pics Joe. Just been on your site. Fantastic pictures, you have an eye for a good shot. I have to look twice at places I know well, cos you shoot them at unfamiliar angles. Love it.

    New Sony Centre, Liverpool 1 shopping complex. Interesting shop specialising only in Sony products. Nice to see this old building has been preserved for modern use including the American Eagle

    Taffy, so where has the US eagle come from? I don't think this was the Embassy. Didn't there used to be an eagle outside The American Bar on Lime Street? Looks very similar.

    Roni, I don't know if anyone did. Just looks like the one in Lime Street. The Lime Street one might still be there.

    Sorry I don't know the origin of the American Eagle on this building on Paradise Street. It used to be a pub and the eagle was there then. So no doubt it's been there for years but quite when it was installed there I don't know either.
