    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).

    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.

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

    been trying to get a photo of this for over 18 months, but shop was always open whenever I was over that way with a camera.

    it's on the Hillborough shop opposite Anfield.
