    Default Scouse(?) Infiltration.

    Spotted this monument,while wandering round Corfu town.The lettering was in Greek,so I guessed it was something local being commemorated,but it turned out to be in honour of the Lord high commisioner,Howard Douglas(1832-35)who was also M.P. for Liverpool (1842-47) William Gladstone 4 times prime minister,who lived in Rodney st,was also a commisioner in 1859,but nothing for him! So now you know!!

    Thanks Steve....got me thinking - do Liverbird's migrate outside the city. Beside the Pooley gates, I've not seen any outside Liverpool?

    Mmmm,often hard to define, as it does/has varied in style over the years! As for Pooley gates,it looks like a nother small step to their return has been made recently, by council rep's!

    Wherever there was a Martins Bank/Bank of Liverpool they sometimes had a Liverbird symbol.
