    excellent pic, Zappa.

    I think the rules should be modified this year and only allow someone to post on consecutive days if nobody else posts an image for the following 24 hours, if that makes sense

    Hi Lindylou,

    Wonderful picture thank you, my father was a bill poster for British Rail and travelled to all the local stations pasting the posters to hordings.
    Has anyone a picture of a bill poster in action? That I could add to my family tree file.

    Mary

    Good idea. Saves on curtains and helps retain heat.

    The conservation centre.

    If I got pulled up taking any in there (and I haven't yet) I'd say i'm helping conserve too.

    Nice, Lindy. And a typical looking Liverpool street if I may say so.

    This is the Cathedral fro Birkenhead Priory.

    Do you not think the left hand side and the right hand side don't seem to match.

    Anyone know why? The right hand side is pointed. I actually helped build this when I was younger.

    They are different....don't know? There's no towers shown on the west side [city side] with the door with the stained glass window over it. The east side [with towers] is the apse, or altar side of the cathedral. It may have something to do with the orientation of the cathedral???

    I seem to recall they altered the design, cutting short the main body, either because of the amount of time it was taking to build or money was short.
    Nearly all churches were designed in the shape of a cross in the old days. so the left side on pablos pic would have been a bit longer, being the bottom part of the cross

    Why is there no pointed towers on the City side though.
