    Exclamation Commemorative signs around Liverpool

    Commemorative signs are lasting statements of the achievements of an individual, or group of people. They can also illustrate the history of a particular building or site, or erected to mark an historic event.

    There are many around Liverpool, we have so many of the 'blue plaques' dotted all over the show!

    Get snapping with your cameras kids!

    I know I know, I snapped this whilst walking around the Hope Street/ Rodney Street area a while ago and didn't give it a thought to get its location. But now the thread has been created specifically for this then we must say where these are, maybe a picture of the building too

    Dingle Lane...Matthew Arnold died nearby. I've seen this style of plaque a lot around town, but plaques are rare around Dingle.

    Saw this on on the side of Lewis's



    Peter Litherland (1756-1805) was a watchmaker and inventor. He was born in Warrington and later moved to Liverpool, which was then the centre of the watchmaking trade. In 1791 he patented the rack lever escapement for watches, which was more accurate than the commonly used verge escapement. (from answers.com)

    Default Old Masonic Pub Lark Lane

    This pub can only be described as having been vandalised in its conversion and refurbishment. Anyway, spotted this sign . It seems to refer to the days when it was a Walker's pub.

    Yes, I tried twice to attach them without success.
    I'll try again in this mail but if there's nothing to see, I've had the same problem.

    We do have a thread for blue plaques.
    Perhaps they should all be merged into one thread.
    I've just snapped the Gerard Manley Hopkins one this evening.

    Default Grard Manley Hopkins at St Francis Xavier's Church.

    It doesn't say 'English Heritage' on it, so I presume Liverpool City Council are behind these plaques.
    Anybody know?

    Default Fishermen's Cottages Plaque

    Not sure about Heritage and Conservation, these cottages near Grassendale Park have long since been demolished.

    There's a similar plaque in Dale Street on the magistrates courts building (former city police bridewell), viz, as follows. I used to work for the Corporation Cleansing Dept. at the window on ground level for a summer job in 1967 which is why I photographed the corner this past May. If I recall correctly, the plaque records that the clock- and watchmaker John Wyke (1720-1787) lived at that location.

    Default Memorial Bench Seats Otterspool Promenade

    Sadly the local yobs have smashed up this delightful seating area on Otterspool Promenade. I'm surprised it wasn't renovated during the recent 1.8M refurbishment of this part of the promenade.
