    So the second one is Boundary Street?
    Don't want people thinking Boundary Stones have dates on them.

    Well it made me laugh
    BTW, took this with my cheapo 10 meg Samsung camera. The pic may look OK, but I wouldn't recommend the camera. Best to get one with a good lens and less pixels.

    Hi Kev

    Nice Liver Bird pics. Where were they taken, if I might ask, Kev?

    The top one was found just off Church Street, one of those roads that runs through to the other side.

    The last one was found in the new Radio Merseyside!

    Took these today - don't know how many times I've walked past this and not noticed it - that was until I did see it yesterday!

    Its on the corner of Fenwick Street and Moor Street (I think). Obviously its for the Liverpool Union Bank Limited - I know there's a Liver Bird in the centre of the design but are they Liver Birds on the upper freeze?

    What do you reckon?

    Ah.... I thought I had posted the previous post so that the pictures were embeded in the mail. How do I get them to embed rather than post as attachments?

    Greatful for any help...

    The pic of the Cunard War Memorial and the Liver building is a classic. I've seen others around, plus my own one. It's one of the best angles to get two Pier Head statues into the same frame.

    The only difference I see In better lens Is the zoom when the bigger lensed cameras can zoom In further with better results.

    The first two are around the Liverpool University Campus in Town, the 3rd and part of a larger mural, is located inside the Royal Liverpool Hospital's main foyer.

    Kev, the bottom picture - do you know of any other 'monuments' that are just like that? I'm going through a series of old photo's for a friend and I have come up with one in Liverpool which is 99% the same but not in that location!

    There's another one at the other entrance to the park. Much taller though and without the coat of arms.

    Although I assume that many of the older parks have similar structures at their entrance, can someone confirm or deny?

    I can confirm that the marble pillars used in those two entrances came from the inside of St George's Hall.
    They were taken out when the organ was installed, and if you look round the interior of the Great Hall, you'll see all the other pillars.
