    Okay, thanks, Joe. I guessed actually that it was probably something like that but wasn't sure. Good work.

    Great pics. Ha, I wonder what the second image was supposed to represent?

    Liverpudlians have balls. . .

    Seriously, I've never seen an image of the Liver Bird in flight, so that's an unusual one. Great photos, Mandy!

    Me neither - It would be a much shorter thread if it was called "Go! Post a Flying Liverbird Picture!"

    I'm completely flummoxed over what it represents. Mandy's thrown us a curve ball here, and raised the bar for us all as well. Perhaps it's something that Mandy has made herself? Come on now, own up time - it's a Blue Peter special isn't it?

    I wonder if the art deco knight is meant to be Britainnia?

    There’s a rather nice showcase in the New Museum on the theme of the origin of the Liver Birds, wherein each of the various birds pictured stakes its claim to be the true Liver Bird…





    Then there’s this one… Can anyone tell us where this was originally? I think I know, but can’t guarantee the authenticity of my information…

    My guess would be the Sailors Home, Cad. Do I get a prize?

    Dunno where Cad's gone, but someone on another web forum has confirmed my belief that, yes, it was over the main doorway of the Sailors' Home. According to the Chester Walls website, which has a lot of info on the Sailors' Home, the Liver Bird was rescued and restored... but to where, I ask myself?

    Ah - my post is simply to say to watch this space about a newly found Liver Bird that I have come across and that it should be in the Echo this week....

    In the meantime, anyone know where this came from??
