    Beautiful pictures.
    Isn't the Liver Bird based on the Cormorant?

    The Liver bird shield is on the Railway bridge adjacent to Runcorn-Widnes bridge.
    The various shields were being painted when I passed (2004).

    Marky, fantastic pics. Keep meaning to take pics of the Scottie Rd one, but it's one of those fleeting moments whenever I drive past. It's a cracking piece of artwork. Many's the time I've been tempted to disassemble it (I reckon 20 minutes tops), slap it in my hire van and reassemble it in my back garden. Seriously

    That bottom one looks like it has been well-used as a WAX-RUBBING. So there's an idea for the museum; so many museums and "experiences" offer "ready-made" brass images for the kids to do wax-rubbings of, and it would only cost buttons to have this kind of thing available in Liverpool Museums. Any other ideas what sort of things could be offered in such a gallery/section/area? Section of Shankly Gates? Something off a ferry-boat (bell)?

    Happy Christmas to all and sundry.

    Sefton Park bridge, near Ibbotsons Lane. I've seen a few of these boxes that don't have the crest.

    Excellent pics chaps ...

    The coat of arms: 'Argent (silver) a Cormorant in the beak a branch of sea-weed called Laver all proper'. It includes Neptune with trident and a Triton blowing his shell. The banners include the Arms of Liverpool and a ship under sail.

    Somewhere I have some photos (not mine unfortunately!) of one of the Liver Birds with a ladder up it, onto it's back! I don't know which crazy fool had been climbing up that (maybe it was for inspection purposes?) but I don't think the ladder's up there anymore...

    It's a municipal signpost, so, yes, it's a LB. I liked the 80s/90s vintage signposts, those with a Liver Bird on top. However, the new, more modern-looking signposts in town are rather smart as well.
