    To learn this...

    "One sculpture that I used to like was the Boy with the Horse at the bottom of Bold Street opposite the Lyceum. It was said to have cost 150,000 and I used to love the way the public interacted with it. Though one day I saw a mother drag her child away in horror who was polishing a part of it that it should have been. It has now been turned into a....wheelie bin. Who robbed it? why was it moved? why didn't anyone at the Daily Ghost, er David Charters even notice?
    So Liverpool European Capital of Bad Sculpture where we dump our good art to replace it with, Tom Murphy Turkey's....clever, the people who run our city, so cultured for sure. "

    Does anybody have a picture of this boy & horse?
    I haven't... and I can assure you it's not worth looking for: it was a total abomination and deserved to be spirited away, IMO! Someone's having a laugh... and if you really want to do some research I think you may find that the so-called Liverpool Preservation Trust is a bit of a joke in itself. Almost anything by Tom Murphy is superb by comparison ( though I agree with the comments on Harold, NOT one of his better pieces.)

I checked out the other offerings that TM has had dumped around your town. Again, maybe this is his, TM's stamp. Like Lowery has match-stick men and match-stick cats and dogs Murphy has ape-armed arse-lessness as his peculiarity? Or schtick I think it's called. (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/schtick)
    Ha,ha, arselessness.............good description,now you've pointed it out!! Had a look for some pic's of the boy, and horse statue,but no luck so far??? (Talking about things going missing....does anyone know when the circular platform,at the top of Church st went?)

    Perhaps a bit of playfulness on TM's part - a shtik played by him to suggest that HW was known for playing shtiks on us himself... ( A slightly different meaning of shtik, but one that is supported by your dictionary link)... Anyway, why the Yiddish... or have I missed something else allegorical or otherwise?

    Has anyone ever started a thread on plants/trees/bushes growing on buildings? I've seen some fine specimens growing out of walls and gutters over the years.

    We stayed at Jurys Hotel last week and the big Wheel was right out side our bedroom window! I forgot my camara but took some photos with my phone I dont think they are good enough to put on here. I thought Liverpool was looking really good last week.

    That's a really good picture GD. The rail track so clear - the sharp lines of the track, and the lighting is good.
