I don't normally past modern day photographs on 'Liverpool Picturebook' or write current events articles, but this is an exception. The unveiling of the new Hillsborough Memorial in Liverpool yesterday will be a part of the history of the City of Liverpool forever.
I stood among a crowd of people assembled at the Old Haymarket yesterday, 14th April 2013, to watch the unveiling ceremony for the new Hillsborough monument which stands at the foot of St Johns Gardens. Families of the 96 were there to see the dedication of this amazing memorial created by sculptor Tom Murphy. The bronze which stands 7’ high bears the words ‘Hillsborough Disaster – we will remember them’. The Hillsborough Justice Campaign commissioned the memorial and has now formally donated it to the city as a lasting tribute to the 96.
