    I appreciate the offer but I do too much during the day and evening to still be up at that hour normally (band pracky last night - 6 a side footy tonight) though i've done a few Mathew st/Victoria st weekend ones in the early hours - the revelers and all. Keep it up, there's never too many doing it.

    Thank you,Joseph...and I suppose the war theme will still be those that where in glass cased cabinets in the old museum, where it depicts ww1 soldier with a machine gun and mock trench ect,ect.

    So this begs the question of....was the visitors numbers falling in the old museum? and the NML decided to regain its visitors by spending 72million on a new building....rather extravagant way to get the visitors back don't ya think.

    I suspect the mummies will turn up in the new museum at some time?

    What a waste of capital.

    My memory of the Anglia is light blue also. A friend recalls it as light green. Our own colour blindness, maybe. Nothing to do with memory, George.

    It's the same one, same Reg number and is pale green. A bloke won it in a competition, coulsdn't drive, sold it to someone who drove around in it for 5 years or so and then it was bought back for exhibition purposes. It's mad that it's so high and out of reach. The massive space at the bottom of the sweeping staircase would have been ideal for it. With over 6000 objects on show, it's not a case of rehashing all the old stuff though because most of it isn't. I don't know if it was because I was just a kid at the time but I prefered the old cobbled street - just as in the world museum I prefered the old corridor aquarium. Still, mustn't grumble eh?

    Bordering more into yellow white more than green,Mart.

    I took this pick from the brightest part of the car ie the bonnet,rather than the sides as any colour from its surroundings will alter the balance of the colour

    Heres a photo i took of the Ford at the Old Museum of Liverpool Life a good 5 or 6 years ago, or thereabouts. Definitely a pale green to me.

    I agree though, **** stupid place to put it. Not a lot of point it being there really
