    Exclamation Commemorative signs around Liverpool

    Commemorative signs are lasting statements of the achievements of an individual, or group of people. They can also illustrate the history of a particular building or site, or erected to mark an historic event.

    There are many around Liverpool, we have so many of the 'blue plaques' dotted all over the show!

    Get snapping with your cameras kids!

    I know I know, I snapped this whilst walking around the Hope Street/ Rodney Street area a while ago and didn't give it a thought to get its location. But now the thread has been created specifically for this then we must say where these are, maybe a picture of the building too

    Found the above at 'The Goree' on the side of the Mersey Tunnel officers.



    Spent a nice day walking around the town.

    Dingle Lane...Matthew Arnold died nearby. I've seen this style of plaque a lot around town, but plaques are rare around Dingle.

    Saw this on on the side of Lewis's



    Peter Litherland (1756-1805) was a watchmaker and inventor. He was born in Warrington and later moved to Liverpool, which was then the centre of the watchmaking trade. In 1791 he patented the rack lever escapement for watches, which was more accurate than the commonly used verge escapement. (from answers.com)

    Default Old Masonic Pub Lark Lane

    This pub can only be described as having been vandalised in its conversion and refurbishment. Anyway, spotted this sign . It seems to refer to the days when it was a Walker's pub.
