    Liverbird (city facing) with ladders. I noticed these ladders around late 2003/until early 2004. I presume for some sort of checking/repair work. A pic appeared in the Echo aswell. On the sea-facing Liverbird I could just about make out 'Billy 1995" had been painted on its' back.

    Thank you for these Liver Birds, Max.

    I suppose you know that Higson's used the Liver Bird on their signs.
    I didn't know that Higson's were still in business, but then, what do I know about Liverpool's Breweries?

    Never heard of Higsons. Mostly heard of Cains which is on the Edinburgh Pub Sign I took as well.

    Default Liver bird in Mossley Hill

    One of the more fascinating relics to be found in Mossley Hill are the old tramway overhead cable support columns. These are to be found on Queen's Drive near its intersection with the main railway line into Lime St. As with many Liverpool Corporation installations, these were adorned with the mythical Liver bird. the attached photo shows one in cast iron at the base of one of the surviving columns near St Anthony of Padua Roman catholic Church.

    The second photo on this thread (Sefton Park) shows the columns that came from St George's Hall when the organ was installed.

    I took this image with this thread in mind...


    Derby Lane, Old Swan This is on the fence outside of the "One-Stop-Shop" on Derby Lane. It's a shame that some of the Purple paint has worn off, could have had a complete Liver Bird!

    Loved those images Kev, was that at a Town Hall open day or something? Some of those scenes look familiar.

    Why didn't I notice they had Liver-birds on em? Tell you what, your the first one! The Liverpool streetlighting community (comprising of 5 approx) talk endlessly about how the vintage streetlighting is so great and not one of them (including me) haven't noticed the liver birds on the bollard.

    I think I should have gone to Specsavers!

    The Boundary Street and Sefton Street Ramp Liverbirds look like they're cast from the same mould. There are other examples of this casting along the canal.

    A small Culture bid logo still exists on Scotland road (the caged-in flats in the background are due for demolition)
